A young moose was killed after injuring a Colorado woman who tried to “guide” him away from her yard in Breckenridge. As reported by CBS News, the moose had been hanging out in the woman’s Peak Seven neighborhood yard for most of the day before she decided to try and move him along.
The moose attacked the woman and caused serious injuries, including broken bones – because the moose displayed aggressive behavior, it was put down. The woman, who was not identified, was hospitalized for her injuries.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife is investigating the incident. In a release, Lyle Sidener, CPW area wildlife manager, stated:
“Unfortunately, the victim felt too comfortable and got too close. Moose look like big friendly critters, but they are tolerant only to a point.”
