An angry moose attacked and injured two women as they walked their dogs near a Gilpin County subdivision Sunday.

The Gilpin County Sheriff's Office says the women were walking on a trail when they were kicked by the animal.

The women were identified as Ellen Marie Divis, 57, and Jacqueline Boron, 50.

They were taken to St. Anthony Central Hospital, where they are in fair condition in the intensive care unit.
