PRINCE GEORGE — An aggressive moose in Ginters Park attacked a person with a dog this weekend, sending them to hospital with undisclosed injuries.

The City has put up signs in Ginters Park cautioning people about one moose in particular which is being described as aggressive.

This comes on the heels of an attack on Sunday, and the conservation service is looking at peaceful options to get rid of the moose. The park is being managed by both the City and the conservation service as safely as they can, preaching education. If you are in contact with a moose, there are recommendations to protect yourself.

"If you do happen to find yourself in a situation with a moose, the best thing to do is just move away and try to make it appear that you are not a threat," explained Conservation Officer Eamon McArthur. "If you do have a dog, get positive control over your dog and remove yourself from the situation."

You're encouraged to call the RAPP line if you see a moose in or around Ginter's Park, at 1-877-952-7277.
