Moose Visits a Hospital

January 9, 2019

A moose wandered into a hospital building in Alaska’s largest city yesterday - and Stephanie Hupton was ready to capture the visit with her phone camera.

Hupton works in billing at a physical therapy office inside a building attached to Alaska Regional Hospital in Anchorage. When a patient mentioned security staffers were monitoring a moose that got inside her building, she dashed out and started recording. The footage shows the moose browsing around some greenery near an entrance before it stands gazing at the camera’s direction.

Hupton said she never felt threatened by the mellow creature in her closest ever encounter with one of the massive animals. The moose briefly lingered before sauntering out through the motion-activated door and meandering around the parking lot.
