Wife uses shovel to defend husband against attacking moose

WILDLIFE ENCOUNTERS — This just in from Alaska:  A woman used a shovel to scare away a moose that was stomping on her husband. 

Maybe this would be no big deal — she probably did make the “for better or worse” vow at the altar — but consider this:  The woman is 85 years old — and Alaska moose are even bigger than those found in Washington and Idaho.

See the Anchorage Daily News story and photos.
