 :2funny:  Damn, they just don't want us to have ANY fun anymore do they? Let me get this straight, which IS hard for me, THEY put salt on the roads, but it's OUR fault if the Moose licks it off our vehicle? As big as that guy is, I'm not going to argue with him over anything he wants to do. I'd be glad he's just licking and not kicking know what I mean?  :coolsmiley:

I don't think this is mentioned in the article but road salt is poisonous for a moose if the take it in larger quantities.

So the guidance to stop the moose from licking cars (they have always taken in salt but now they have learned this shortcut) is for the benefit of the moose.

Yes, it mentioned that it wasn't good for them. Doesn't surprise me, Road Salt isn't good for the cars either. Getting the Moose to understand this is another story altogether.  :hide:

So who's going to stop the moose from licking the road?   :crazy2:

Not me. Couple of guys I used to work with would probably give a try to rubbing salt all over their bodies and then.... never mind, I won't go there.  :hide:

They lick the roads too.  A fair number of people get killed each year after driving into a moose.  They are just tall enough that the front bumper sweeps the leg, Johnny and the body of the moose goes straight through the windshield.
