"Do not attempt to push moose away from your vehicle while on foot," the warning reads.

Many animals, including moose, have a natural need for salt in order to maintain good health and if there is no natural source available, they will search elsewhere for replenishment.


The warning remains in place until further notice.

This is why a lot of moose and other critters end up as road kill during the winter. They lick salt off the highway and in spring drink water from the run off beside the roadbed.
