Moose attack injures Prince George woman
Last Updated: Thursday, February 22, 2007 | 4:37 PM PT
Prince George RCMP have issued a public alert after a moose attack in the city on Thursday morning.
A female moose with two calves attacked a 60-year-old woman while she was walking her dog. The woman was taken to hospital with minor injuries while her dog, a cocker spaniel, was so badly injured that it had to be euthanized.
Earlier this month, a moose with calves chased a man in a residential neighborhood that backs onto a hillside.
"We've advised people to bring in their dogs and to just be aware if they're out walking," Constable Gary Godwin told CBC Radio.
Students at Pinewood Elementary School, near the location of Thursday's attack, were kept inside during recess.
Conservation officers are now looking for the moose, but have not yet determined what they'll do with them. They say, "a moose protecting her calves can be dangerous — even deadly."
"I'm a forest engineer by day and part time guide on the Ste-Marguerite River here in central Quebec. I've been fishing this river for about 10 years now and started guiding about 5 years ago when the local guide's association sort of stopped functioning."
Chris guides mostly for sea run brook trout and about 30% of the time for Atlantic Salmon. "I often don't even charge service fees, as I'm more interested in promoting the river than making cash. I like to get new comers to realize that salmon fishing is REALLY for anyone who cares to try it. Tradition around here makes some of the old clan see Salmon fishing as a sport for the rich. Today our shore lunches are less on the cucumber sandwich side and more toward chicken pot pie and Jack Daniel's."
Chris is 42 years old as of this writing. He is of Chinese origin although his parents were born and raised in Jamaica. He has a girlfriend, Renée. "She and her 12 year old son Vincent started fly fishing with me in October 2002."
