Default Moose giving a car a bath

Looked out the window here at the Apartment in Nikiski, and the same moose that has been bedding down by my truck in the morning was licking the road salt off one of the other tenants car....which of course was funny until I realized now it explains why all my "road dirt" is smeared all over my truck!

Yep, I caught a pair red-handed the other day as well - only this happened to be the night I was up late photographing the Auroras! I went out at about 3am to retrieve my camera only to find a Momma and her Yearling had decided that they needed to get their salt fix right then in the middle of the night, and were standing next to my car and camera in the driveway!. I had to wait another hour before they decided they had their fill and lumbered off into my backyard to bed down for the night!

Would be OK if maybe they would check the tires and oil level while they're at it...

I gave up trying to hire the neighborhood moose to wash my car. They never do a very good job.

I guess you can say...your truck has officially been tongued. Even Moose have fetishes.

He was licking salt, it freezes at lower temps... Besides it was about 38 above yesterday!

I don't go on this forum but the headline caught my eye. Great picture! It sure is nice living in areas where nature can get this close. I'd love to see those huge moose you have up there. Our moose are pretty little compared to Alaskan moose.
