Moose group tries to prevent moose collisions

- FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - An Anchorage-based group that works to prevent moose from being killed on Alaska's highways and roads is expanding its operation to Fairbanks. The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner says the Alaska Moose Federation has about a half-dozen volunteers - most of them employees of Sportsman's Warehouse - available to respond when a moose is hit within about a 25-mile radius of Fairbanks. At the direction of Alaska State Troopers, the federation delivers the dead animals to an individual or nonprofit organization, usually a church. Previously, individuals and nonprofits who signed up with troopers to receive a roadkill moose were responsible for transporting the moose or butchering it on the side of the road themselves.
