Grin … You can’t make this kind of thing up. Hot off the press from our Canadian friends.
Officials in western Canada are warning motorists not to interact with moose if they find the animals licking salt off their cars.
An alert issued by the province of Alberta’s government says that moose are approaching vehicles in car parks near two trails in Peter Lougheed Provincial Park, and warns people not to try to push the animals away while on foot.
It advises that the recommended “moose viewing distance” is 30m (100ft), and any car licking creatures should be deterred by either sounding a horn or using a remote door alarm. CBC news points out, adult moose can weigh more than 1,000lb (453kg), so shoving one is unlikely to be effective. The animals can become aggressive and charge people or vehicles if they feel threatened.
Merry Christmas Canada
