There are usually several stories like this every winter. To sum up, this poor man (82 years old) was attacked by a moose, which his 85 year old wife chased off by beating it with a shovel until it stopped attacking her husband. He's lucky to have gotten away, and with *only* seven broken ribs.
Also, we're entering yet another cold snap. *Sigh* I'm dreaming of beaches and Fairbanks is giving me -40 and -50. Or, rather hilariously, snowfall on a sunny day as it was doing yesterday. I'm not sure how that worked since there was nothing more than wispy clouds above, but it was definitely snowing. We got a lovely snow rainbow out of it, too.
