A wildlife enthusiast experienced what he said was a "once-in-a-lifetime moment" when a moose he was filming with a drone shed both of its antlers.

The woman said she was on her usual route in Anchorage last week when she was charged from behind and kicked in the head by the moose.

The family passing by helped pull the woman from the snowbank and called for help.

The woman needed staples in her head, and is now recovering.
