It was business as usual at the Alaska Regional Hospital in Anchorage on Monday. Doctors were seeing patients, staffers were chatting, and then all of a sudden the day took an exciting turn when an unexpected guest ambled through the doors into the lobby: a big ol' moose.
Around noon, the Alaska Regional Hospital was greeted by a massive cow moose who found her way into the lobby and beelined straight to its decorative tropical greenery. Seeing the majestic creatures up-close is fairly common in America's northernmost state, but discovering one lounging in the same place people go for annual checkups naturally caused quite the stir. The four-legged female seemed pretty unfazed, though, and calmly explored and taste-tested the variety of fronds on display.
