STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (AP), Dec 23 - A moose and her two calves are drawing crowds in a Colorado ski resort as they lick parked vehicles for the salt on them.
The Steamboat Pilot & Today reports (http://bit.ly/t0jMDM ) the moose have been spotted tasting the sides of an animal control vehicle and, most recently, the bumper of a salty Subaru.
State wildlife manager Jim Haskins says the moose apparently are licking up salt used on city roads. He urges spectators to give the moose plenty of room when they appear around town so they don't feel threatened.
