Kira_MooseOn Sunday, May 19, 2014, two females were walking their dogs near Forrest Hills subdivision in Gilpin County when a #moose attacked them. Due to the increased moose population throughout Colorado, these encounters are becoming more frequent. Here are a few tips from the #Division of Wildlife if you encounter a moose:  walk away from it – DO NOT walk towards it; moose are agitated by dogs; make sure your dog is on a leash, control the dog(s) and walk away.
