Whenever we see large creatures attack humans in suburban areas or National Parks, nine times out of ten, it’s the person’s own fault.
It normally occurs whenever someone tries to get dangerously close to the creature, invading their personal space, threatening them and their babies, or in some cases, even tries to pet the creature.
This is when these large creatures, like elk, bison, moose, etc… feel the most threatened, and their protective instincts begin to flash, and things can get ugly pretty quick.
However, there are also times where the human isn’t doing anything wrong at all, and the creatures attack anyways.
That’s exactly what happened to this poor soul in Alaska, who got lit up like a Christmas tree in the back of the head by a moose.
It all happened to Tracy Hansen, who was walking her dog in Anchorage, Alaska, according to NBC News.
In the video footage, you can see Hansen walking down the sidewalk minding her own business, when all of a sudden you see a moose charging directly towards her.
You can hear the people in the car who were videoing yelling for her to look out, but it was too late…
The moose proceeded to kick her straight in the back of the head.
Following the incident, she told the outlet:
“I thought someone had not been paying attention, and hit me with a bike or something, but I had put my hands up to my head and I’m like ‘I’m bleeding.’
Knowing that the moose had been somewhere behind me, and now here this moose is in front of me, I’m like ‘Was that the moose?'”
It appears that Hansen only suffered minor injuries, and appeared to be in pretty good spirits during the interview.
Nevertheless, the video tells a completely different story.
Keep your head on a swivel in moose country folks, you never know when you’re gonna get blindsided from behind.
