Moose on the Loose

This photo was taken at Eielson Air Force Base in Alaska around 2003. The large critter is a moose, and the F-16 in the picture ain't going anywhere until the moose decides to leave. The Eielson base and the surrounding area is home to over 500 moose. After September 11, 2001, the usual hunting activity (to keep the moose population down) was curtailed when the base was closed to civilians. But this policy was soon changed to allow the hunters to go in and keep the moose population under control. Since there are not enough local wolves (fewer than a dozen) to keep the moose population down, without the hunters, many moose would starve over the long Winters because of a lack of sufficient food for a larger herd.
