City's Burgeoning Moose Population Calls for
Animals' Relocation or Hunt
Letters to the Editor / Anchorage Daily News /March 28, 2004
Moose in Anchorage are way overpopulated
with little if any natural fear left as they have no predators
in Anchorage. This is a very dangerous combination. We either
unintentionally hit them with our vehicles or have potentially
dangerous encounters in our yards and trails. I have chosen
to protect myself by carrying a visible weapon when conditions
make aggressive moose encounters likely.
While it is politically unpopular, the moose need to be thinned out in Anchorage
by relocation or a hunt. People are being injured and killed because our elected
officials along with Fish and Game will not address the problem. I will continue
to take responsibility for my own safety as our government will not.
