With the heavy snowfall in Alaska, moose have headed towards roads and railways to find food. In their foraging efforts they have become quite hazardous to the drivers in Alaska. The non-profit group Alaska Moose Federation has already helped a lot this year, they have taken over clean-up and removal of moose struck by vehicles, they have started feeding in efforts to entice the moose away from the roads. Now they will be literally picking up and relocating the moose. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game has issued a permit for the AMF to move the moose 10 miles from the roads. The permit requires the moose to be collared, ear tagged, and moved at least 5 miles from major roads and railways. From NewsMiner.com.
