Why did the moose cross the road?
Because the sign said the moose could. Living side-by-side with wildlife is just a natural part of living in Alaska. They often come into human-inhabited parts of the state, and we usually head into their neck of the woods for hunting. It’s a give-and-take relationship that nobody can or wants to stop.
That said, you should take certain precautions when you inevitably find yourself crossing paths with a moose. You may have done nothing wrong to the moose, but your very existence can make a moose go from 0 to 100 like that. If a moose charges, run like the wind.
