Dorothea Taylor describes her effort to stop a moose that was stomping her husband, George Murphy, right, Monday, Jan. 22, 2012, from Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage, Alaska. An agitated moose on Friday ran down and stomped Murphy, a well-known Bush pilot from Willow, but he was saved when his wife, who is 5 feet tall and weighs 97 pounds, grabbed a shovel from their pickup truck and whacked the big animal until it backed off.
