A reminder for fighters

They had these antlers on display in the Dawson City visitors information centre.

It's two sets of antlers, intertwined. Apparently two moose decided to butt heads to determine who would get to mate. The bigger moose won and likely killed the smaller moose in battle. However, as a result of the fight the antlers got stuck together, meaning that the winner ended up having the loser moose attached to his head until he starved or was taken down by opportunistic predators.

The moral of the story - Be careful of which fights you get into. Even when you win, you might lose.
