Last stand of two bull moose encased in ice

WILDLIFE -- A fierce and chilling fight took the lives of two bull moose in Alaska this season.

One of them may have been knocked out cold, and the other froze to death.

The 800- to 1,000-pound carcasses were discovered last week, their antlers still entwined and both of them encased in ice near the remote village of Unalakleet, Alaska, on the state's western coast.
