Use Caution Around Moose
A cow with two calves has been at Riley Creek Campground in the park for the past few weeks. This cow is very defensive of her calves, charging people when they approach too closely and injuring at least three people, one severely. Cow moose are particularly defensive of their newly born calves at this time of year so it is best to give them lots of space. In Denali, you must stay at least 25 yards away but some moose may be disturbed at an even greater distance.
