Don’t Pet the Moose
A moose kicked a woman in Town Square Park Monday afternoon
after she got too close to the animal and reportedly tried to pet it, according
to Anchorage police.
The moose kicked the unidentified woman several times --
including in the chest and shoulder -- but she was not injured badly enough to
go to the hospital, according to police spokeswoman Anita Shell.
Police were called to Town Square at about 4:40 p.m. and
medics checked the woman and determined she was OK, Shell said.
Witnesses told police that the moose kicked the woman, in
her 20s, after she tried to pet it as it walked by, Shell said.
The moose was spotted in Town Square throughout the day on
Monday, feeding on trees. The moose was still hanging around at the downtown
park after police arrived and the woman left at around 5 p.m.
"At this time, we are telling people not to agitate the
moose ... to give it space," Shell said.
Anchorage police said they did not request that state
biologists deal with the moose because the animal wasn't going after anyone
"It was just doing what moose do," Shell said.
Gambler forgets money at Nacho Mamma's
BRISTOL, R.I. (WPRI) - People leave items behind all the
time at Nacho Mamma's restaurant in Bristol. But it's not everyday a bag filled
with cash and a diamond ring ends up in the lost and found.
A professional gambler stopped at the restaurant Friday on
his way back from a trip to Mohegan Sun. It's there he left his winnings and
engagement ring for his girlfriend.
"I am here doing something... and a little girl said
here's a bag someone left here and I didn't think anything of it," says
Mike Siino, the owner of Nacho Mamma's.
Hours later, after lunch cleanup, Siino looked into the bag
and discovered a massive stash of cash. The bills were wrapped in wads of
$5,000 with the Mohegan Sun logo on them.
Siino called police, who tracked down the owner through a
receipt for the engagement ring.
"I believe in karma, it's a big thing," says
The owner of the money and the ring is a professional
gambler. He got his money back and on Monday he paid Siino a visit and gave him
"He handed me an envelope, and there was $1,000 in it.
We needed it more than anything after this long winter, I went right next door
to Citizens Bank and deposited it."
Siino used the cash to a pay a bill and says he'll
sleep easy knowing he did the right thing.
