Moose Wanders into Alaska Hospital

There is no code for when a moose enters a building. 

By HFT Staff

It is well known to residents of Alaska that when a moose approaches you, you are considered to be in slight danger. However, when a moose entered a Providence Alaska Health Park in Anchorage, Alaska, people had the opposite reaction.  

In a video posted to Facebook, a young moose walked through the doors of the hospital and began calmly eating leaves as security personnel approach. 

Wildlife sightings are seemingly normal on the hospital campus, CBS News reports. However, there is no code for when a moose enters a building.  

“There’s a moose in our hospital, guys,” a witness to the sighting said in a video. “It’s just chilling.” 

Security guards were able to coax the moose out of the hospital after arranging furniture for a smooth getaway.
