NEW YORK, Dec. 30 (UPI) -- A New York woman's lawsuit against a bar claims she suffered injuries and "embarrassment" when a stuffed moose head fell from a wall and struck her on the head.

Raina Kumra's lawsuit, filed in New York Supreme Court, says she was in the White Slab Palace at about 1 a.m. Oct. 2 when the mounted moose head "dislodged and struck plaintiff on the head," the New York Post reported Wednesday.

"The taxidermy moose head weighed approximately 150 pounds, with antlers spanning over three feet," the court papers said.

The suit states Kumra suffered "chronic neck pain" in addition to other "severe personal injuries," including "embarrassment."

"It was the bar's fault," Kumra, 32, told the New York Daily News. "I was injured and in an embarrassing way."

The suit, which seeks unspecified monetary damages, names bar owner Annika Sundvik.
