Alaska Group Mulls Moose Solutions
From The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner:
Crosswalks similar to those used in school zones, complete with flashing lights and a warning that a moose is crossing the road.
Electronic mats built into roads that shock moose if they step on them.
Groomed trails leading to feedlots well off the road.
Those are just some of the techniques the Alaska Moose Federation is promoting to help keep moose off Alaska roads.
As AMF president Gary Olson so eloquently put it, “Everybody loves moose and they taste a lot better when they’re not marinated with anti-freeze.”
