SOCIAL media users have marveled at incredible video footage that appears to show a “Jesus moose” walking on water.
The video was posted on TikTok by Kristy Paniptchuk, who was riding on a boat along a river in Alaska when she spotted the majestic animal.
As Paniptchuk increased the speed of the boat, the moose ran alongside the vessel and moved effortlessly on the surface of the water.
At one point, it looks like the animal is walking on the surface of the water, but then picks up speed and begins to run right in front of the boat.
Paniptchuk has insisted the video is not fake and said the moose was attempting to get upstream.
She explained the astonishing feat was achieved in large part because the river was only about five inches deep.
At the time of filming, Pantipchuk was in a riverboat equipped with a jet motor travelling up the stream.
People have since dubbed the moose as “Jesus Moose,” with one person joking that they don’t remember this happening in the Bible.
A YouTube user commented on the video saying, “The Moosiah has returned.”
Another user compared the animal’s incredible feat to Olympic Gold Medalist Usain Bolt, “He just moosain bolted across the water.”
Someone else commented, “He has returned not as a lion or a lamb, but as an improbably large deer.”
