A surveillance camera captured a shocking moose attack on an Anchorage family’s dog. According to KTVA News, On Saturday afternoon, Kim Mahosky’s dogs were outside playing in the snow, inside of their fenced-in yard, when the unthinkable happened.
A moose cow had jumped the fence and was inside of Mahosky’s yard, trampling her nine-year-old Cocker spaniel, Daisy. The video shows Daisy being thrown around like a rag doll – amazingly, despite the violent thrashing, Daisy survived, albeit with serious injuries.
Mahosky told KTVA, “My poor little Daisy laid on the porch shaking with blood pouring from the top of her back.” The injured dog was rushed to a veterinarian and she had to undergo emergency surgery – fortunately, she is expected to recovery.
Following the traumatic incident, Daisy’s owner wants others to be aware of the danger that moose can pose to pets. She told KTUU, “We just have to be careful, careful of your surroundings and people need to be aware of how dangerous they are.”
