No hand gun is going to stop these beast.

Not an enraged mother, that's for sure.  I had to work in Montana once, and was issued "bear spray."  We were told it was effective against bears and moose, but were specifically warned NOT to spray moose calves or bear cubs; if we did, we were told that no amount of pepper spray (and very few calibers) would stop an attack from angry mama. 

But an uncommitted moose/bear can be frightened off with a warning shot.  It sure saved that dude in the video.
