Woman Attacked By Moose In Kincaid Park

A woman was attacked by a cow moose in Kincaid Park in Anchorage Monday.

Parks and Rec says the incident occurred when the woman and her husband were taking an evening walk on the Mize Loop Trail and inadvertently came between the moose and her calf.

The woman was reportedly kicked in the head, neck and back and taken to the hospital.

Warning signs are posted at the park about calving season but Superintendent Holly Spoth-Torres says the public needs to be aware that all of the city is moose country and this is a touchy time of year.
