Woman attacked by moose finds lost dog
It was a harrowing ordeal, but it had a happy ending. Thursday morning, a woman who was attacked by a moose near Kincaid Park, last week, was reunited with her dog.
Catherine Dwinnell said she ordered her dog Molni to run when the moose began to attack her and a companion Friday. Dwinnell had been looking for Molni ever since.
Thursday, Dwinnell got the call that Molni had been spotted on airport property and lured into a live trap baited with peanut butter.
“Oh my gosh,” said Dwinnell. “I was so relieved. There was nothing wrong with her. She was all in one piece. She didn’t seem like she’d been traumatized. She seemed great.”
Dwinnell said now that Molni is back she can concentrate more fully on healing herself. She spent three days in the hospital after the attack with broken ribs, a fractured wrist and a punctured lung. Her friend, Melanie Sandstrom was also injured in the attack.
Dwinnell said she plans to steer clear of the isolated area where the attack occurred, but it won’t stop her from walking Molni.
“She loves to play frisbee,” said Dwinnell.
They planned to do it soon.
