I was taking the trash out Sunday morning. I was still in my pajama's, slippers and still needed a shower and more coffee. When I was steeping up on the porch I heard a car horn blow and traffic driving slowly. I looked down the alley and saw Momma moose and her two young ones having breakfast right next to A St.
I ran inside, grabbed my camera and a jacket. I was not dressed for success.
Anchorage has grown a lot in the 25 plus years that I've lived here. There are a lot more businesses, people and then traffic. What amazes me is the respect drivers give a moose crossing the road. Sometimes they slow down or even stop until they are all the way across.
There are plenty of horror stories of moose and car collisions. Moose behavior can be very unpredictable. They can be easily spooked and dash across the road without much warning. They don't pay any attention to jay walking laws. They can do a lot of damage to a vehicle.
