Man shoots moose at Denali National Park and Preserve

A visitor to Denali National Park and Preserve shot a cow moose that allegedly charged him and his family.

According to Denali Spokeswoman Kris Fister, on Thursday evening the man who shot the moose was visiting the park with his two young children when the moose charged.
