Seems like trying to go to school in Fairbanks and Anchorage is hazardous for your health. Glad he's ok!

Few years ago in Anchorage, kids were throwing snowballs and such at a Moose and her calf, then a guy came out of the building and was kicked to death by the mother moose, she didn't know who was throwing the snowballs, but was getting PO'd by it and the poor guy was the first she could see.

Seems like every few years, someone gets hammered by one being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

CAUTION, the video is graphic of a moose attack, don't watch it if you have issues with it.

There is a couple kids in Haines who have been kicked by moose.

I am surprised no kids here at UAA have been killed.
