A cow moose may weigh between 800 and 1,300 pounds, according to Wood River Valley Wildlife Smart Communities.

A Ketchum woman is recovering from a concussion, a broken nose and significant bruising after she was reportedly charged at and struck by a cow moose in the Warm Springs area of Ketchum on Friday evening.

Longtime valley resident Lori Sarchett said she pulled in her driveway on River Run Court around 8:45 p.m. and let her two dogs out of the car.

“The dogs ran over to the side yard and started barking,” she said. “That’s where the moose was standing, but I did not know that at the time.”
