Mother Moose Shot After Attack
A woman was able to use her cell phone to call for help after being attacked by a moose in her neighborhood in Palmer Alaska. The moose that attacked the woman was a mother with 2 calves. The woman sustained injuries to her chest that could have killed her. She is in stable condition at Mat-Su Regional Hospital. A charity was able to salvage the meat from the cow moose, who had to be put down when she tried to attack the woman and troopers responding.
The two calves were taken by Fish and Game to a wildlife center, and hopefully will be released next fall into the wild. This is the second cow moose put down within the week for aggressive behavior. Wednesday, one was put down after chasing a little girl riding her bike and a jogger. More from KTUU.com.
