An Alaska woman is recovering after she was kicked in the head by a sneaky moose, she says.

Tracy Hansen says she was walking her dog last week when she felt something from behind whack her across the head. "I thought someone had not been paying attention and hit me with a bike or something," Hansen says. "I had put my hands up to my head, and I’m like, ‘I’m bleeding.’" She adds while she and her dog had passed a moose a short time earlier, she still wasn’t sure what had struck her.

Fortunately, Anchorage resident Kate Timmons – who was driving by with her family – saw the whole thing unfold. She says she watched as the moose sneaked up on its unsuspecting victim – and even tried warning her as the moose got close. "My husband was able to help pull her over the snow bank, so we could get her in the truck with her dog and kind of get her out of the way," Timmons recalls. “It definitely seemed unprovoked from our standpoint, and it happened so fast.”

Despite the incident, Hansen says she has no plans to stop going on daily walks with her dog.
