A game warden for the North Dakota Game and Fish Department was attacked by a bull moose Wednesday, Oct. 23.
District Game Warden Jonathan Toftland was investigating a report of a sick or injured moose in the Bottineau area. When he approached the moose, which was lying down, the animal stood up and became aggressive.
"It charged him and knocked him down," said Robert Timian, NDG&F chief game warden. "He went to the hospital, was evaluated and treated and released. They recommended he take a couple of days off."
The moose was killed during the incident which could have resulted in a much different outcome.
"Considering how serious this could of been it ended up not bad," said Timian.
