Unless there is more to this story, I am deeply disappointed at the action taken by wildlife officials in this case. I have always held them in the highest esteem, not so any more. This cow moose did exactly what she is supposed to do. To kill her, much less her calf, is morally and ethically wrong, in my opinion.

I do wish they'd spare the moose' life. It didn't mean unjustified harmed; it was trying to protect its young.
It'd have been much better if they had simply moved the moose 50 miles from the area, with her young, put in dense forest, far away from any human populations.

"GRAND LAKE- A moose charged and knocked down Sue Rogers, 60, of Grand Lake, in a neighborhood southwest of Grand Lake on Tuesday, June 4, after her dog barked at the cow moose and its calf.
The woman received abrasions on her head, though was not trampled by the moose, and was taken to Granby Medical Center by Grand County EMS and was later transported to St. Anthony’s Hospital in Lakewood.
The cow moose and her calf were euthanized following the incident by local wildlife officials in the interest of human health and safety"
So this woman walked up to a moose and her calf with a dog, was knocked down and they killed the moose and her baby?
They should have euthanized the old bat instead.
