An Anchorage Police Officer had a very close call with wildlife this past weekend.

Close Call

Officer Welch had a close call the other day while driving in her patrol car. Luckily no one was injured and our Alaskan drivers knew to slow down to a stop. Mama and her calf are okay. This is a great reminder: we share this beautiful place with all kinds of wildlife. They're always around. Keep an eye out and be safe!

On Saturday, July 27th, APD says Officer Welch was driving her patrol car when a mama moose and her calf cut in front of her.

You can see mama moose slip and fall and the young calf dart right back to where they came.

Thankfully no one was hurt.
