GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — An elderly woman is recovering from severe injuries after she was attacked by a cow moose outside a home in western Colorado.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials say the woman was taking a dog out on a leash when she was attacked outside a home south of Glenwood Springs on Friday night.

The area is known for its moose habitat and is frequented by the ungulates year-round.

Wildlife officials believe the attack likely happened because the cow moose was protecting her calves.
