Boy attacked by moose "feigns death," thanks WoW

A Norwegian news site is reporting that a young boy and his sister were attacked by a moose (same thing happened to my sister once), and the boy reportedly "taunted' the moose away from his sister, and then feigned death, causing the moose to lose aggro and leave. "Just like you learn in level 30 in World of Warcraft," the boy is reportedly quoted as saying.

Cynic that I am, I find it hard believing any of this is true at all-- maybe one of our Norwegian readers (and I know we have them, because I met two at BlizzCon) can let us know whether "Nettavisen" is to be trusted as a source or not. But even if it is true, I'm just as hesitant to jump to praise WoW for supposedly helping as I am to condemn it for supposedly hurting.

Still, I'm glad the kid came out of it OK, and if WoW is to thank, all the better. Now if only he'd been able to control his DPS in the first place, he'd never have aggroed at all.

Blizzard Europe at The Gathering

Blizzard (in the guise of CM Thundgot) will be at The Gathering in Hamar, Norway next Friday and Saturday (the 14th and 15th).  He'll be meeting and greeting players as well as taking employment applications (a list of current European openings can be found here).  So if you're in the neighborhood or were planning on attending , here's your chance to meet one of Blizzard's own in the flesh!
