State officials are asking residents of a Spenard-area neighborhood to give a cow moose space as it stays near the body of a calf outside an empty home this week.
Ken Marsh, a spokesman for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, said biologists first received a report Tuesday afternoon about the carcass on the 3200 block of Wyoming Drive. A real-estate agent called again about the moose Wednesday morning, prompting an afternoon visit by Fish and Game.
“We confirmed a dead moose calf,” Marsh said. “The cow is nearby, but not acting aggressively.”
