Snow Complicates Life 
for Alaska's Moose


30 Jan 07 - The huge amount of snow this winter is a bit much even for the stilt-legged animals. So they're choosing major roads, plowed sidewalks and groomed trails to sidestep the vast cushion of snow left dumped on Anchorage, Alaska, last month.

The ungainly half-ton ungulates are even showing up downtown, placidly gnawing on bare trees at busy intersections.

Anchorage has received almost 76 inches of snow this winter, and the season is only half over. Snowfall normally totals 68 inches for the entire season.

In a normal winter 130 moose can die from car collisions within the city limits. Such deaths could be two, even three times the average by winter's end, said Gary Olson of the Alaska Moose Federation, a nonprofit moose advocacy group. "We could be heading into a killer snow year, with the snowiest months ahead," he said.
