Steamboat Springs wildlife officers are investigating another moose attack where a woman was injured while walking her dogs.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife District Wildlife Manager Steve Baumgardner said the incident occurred Thursday morning, but they had not yet spoken with the injured woman.

Baumgardner said they learned about the incident after Yampa Valley Medical Center staff contacted the Routt County Sheriff's Office.

Based on preliminary information, investigators think the woman was walking her two dogs near her home on Routt County Road 38A, when the moose initially went after the dogs.

"She went to go save her dogs and got stomped," Baumgardner said.
