The following is a press release from Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks:
BIG SKY – Two people, received relatively minor injuries Wednesday in a surprise close encounter with a moose in Big Sky.
A group of seven people was walking between Turkey Leg and Sitting Bull roads at Big Sky Resort at about 10 a.m. when they were charged by a cow moose. Two people in the group, a woman and a man received relatively minor injuries.
A game warden with Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks responded and interviewed several people who had recently seen a cow moose, and a calf in the area. It’s likely the moose was acting in defense of the calf, which is normal. FWP staff will monitor moose activity in this area, but no further management action is planned at this time.
