Two people have been injured at separate moose attacks. The incidents took place in Willow and Talkeetna.
Troopers say both of the women were parents walking to the bus stop with their children. The Talkeetna woman suffered injuries to her lower leg and the other woman in Willow sustained injuries to her ribs.
Troopers say no children were hurt in the incident because the women had placed themselves between the moose and the kids to protect them.
The excessive amount of snow this year has made it difficult for moose to get food, which has left them irritated and hungry.
The Moose Federation is working to remove moose from busy highways to prevent collisions and has set up diversionary feeding stations in the MatSu valley along with trails for them to get to the food source.
