Canadian Park officials warn: Please don't let moose lick your car
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Parks officials in Canada have a warning. Please don't let moose lick your car. The animals love the taste of road salt and need salt in their diets. Watching this seems fun for the occupants of the car, but the interaction can cause the moose to lose their fear of cars and people, leading to traffic accidents. Experts advise slowing down for a picture or two, but do not stop to let the moose snack. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
