Teton Village resident recovering from being trampled by moose


April 6, 2023

Hannah Garland, 27, will be spending the better part of the next six weeks in bed, healing from a moose attack that occurred early Friday morning, March 24, just outside her apartment building in Teton Village. The ambush left Garland with a concussion and every one of her ribs cracked. Her dog Richard came out unscathed, which Garland said is the only thing she cares about. (Photo by Kathryn Ziesig, Jackson Hole News&Guide)

JACKSON - Hannah Garland finds it oddly comforting that she knows which moose trampled her Friday morning.

But knowing that it was Yellow 72, a collared, suburban moose known for her mangy look, hair loss and springtime tick infestation, allows Garland a bit more certainty in where she directs her fear - and ire.

"This bitch. 72," Garland said. "You swamp donkey."

Before dawn Friday...
