    Default Alaskan granny beats moose off husband with shovel

    Alaska woman, 85, uses shovel to fend off moose

    Associated Press – 6 hrs ago


    ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — An 85-year-old Alaska woman used a grain shovel to fend off an agitated moose that was stomping her husband.



    George Murphy says his wife saved his life.

    The Anchorage Daily News (Wife stops moose stomping with shovel: Mat-Su | Alaska news at adn.com) says the 82-year-old pilot, who flew for three decades for the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, was hiking with his golden retrievers near the Willow airport Friday. He saw the moose and dove in the snow, but the moose started stomping him.

    His wife, Dorothea, who is 5 feet tall and weighs 97 pounds, grabbed a big shovel and hit the moose in the body and head.

    She ran for help, and Murphy was rushed by medical helicopter to an Anchorage hospital. He was in good condition Monday with a gash to his head.

    I hope Hubby makes it, in the longer article he also has a bad gash on his leg and seven broken ribs, those can turn serious at his age, but both seem tough as nails, so maybe he will be okay.

    Didn't know moose (plural?) were so aggressive. Awesome lady reminds me of the adrenaline junkie nanny from Hoodwinked.

    Yeah, moose are nasty and aggressive. They are not Bullwinkle.

    Yes they are aggressive. I was in Flagstaff, AZ sitting in bad traffic and "awwww look" at the cute moose in the little park next to us. Then for no reason we can figure, came up and headbutted our car right where my oldest (who was almsot two at the time) was strapped in his car seat. I jumped out of the car and tried to punch the moose, but it ran away. I'm lucky I'm not dead from doing something so stupid, but when your baby is a target, all bets are off.

    Still can't believe I tried to beat up a moose. With my bare hands no less.
