Don’t Scratch The Moose!

From the Anchorage Daily News:

State wildlife biologist Rick Sinnott thought locals already knew better than to scratch a moose's ears.

But the latest urban man-beast encounter this summer has him saying the obvious: Don't pet the Big Wild Life. . . .

Sinnott's exasperation followed a petting incident Tuesday night in West Anchorage in which a man walked up to a yearling moose in a park where soccer games are played and began scratching its head like he would a horse, witnesses said.

It wasn't just a quick pat. It went on for about 15 minutes, they said. . . .

"We can't write citations for stupidity, unfortunately," he said.
