ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Chloe Metzger, 6, is in fair condition according to Providence hospital officials, after a moose attack Monday night at her home in Eagle River.
The moose stomped her while she was playing in her backyard with a neighborhood friend, Anchorage Police say.
Chloe's mom, Julie Metzger, said Chloe underwent one surgery already, and will undergo another Wednesday to repair torn muscles in her upper arm and a broken clavicle.
"I think her spirits are still high and she seems like a girl that's in recovery and happy that people are coming to visit her," Julie said.
According to Julie, Chloe and her friend were jumping on a trampoline in their yard, when the two decided they wanted to "go potty" in the woods near their yard when the moose saw them and started to chase them.
