A New York woman is suing a bar - after she suffered concussion when she was hit by a falling moose head.
Raina Kumra says she was minding her own business at the White Slab Palace on the Lower East Side when the stuffed head fell off a wall.
In papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, her lawyer complained: "The taxidermy moose head weighed approximately 150lbs, with antlers spanning over three feet."
Ms Kumra says it caused her "chronic neck pain, anxiety, fatigue, dizziness and other serious and severe personal injuries," including "embarrassment".
Ms Kumra, an internet design consultant, declined to comment, reports the New York Post.
But the lawsuit says that since the incident, her "overall health, strength and vitality have been greatly impaired."
The suit seeks unspecified money damages from the bar for "failing to ensure that the plaintiff and other patrons of the defendants would not be struck by the loosely affixed... moose head".
The White Slab Palace is also declining to comment.
