When the two men spotted the mother moose, they tried to run away. It is not known if the mother moose kicked or stepped on Chorman. The second man was not injured.

The moose and her babies disappeared. The animals are not normally aggressive, however they can become quite agitated when provoked or while protecting their young. Now that it is calving season, tourists and local residents are urged to give all moose extra space. A small adult moose can weigh more than 800 pounds, and an adult male can weigh twice as much.
