Cow Moose and Calf

Moose are year-round residents here in Anchorage. There are said to be about 1,500. We also have 4 wolf packs, brown bears in summer, and other wildlife.

While there are the occasional problems we love our wildlife. Many moose are well behaved and seem to cross roads at crosswalks after waiting for a walk signal.
