I think the whole thing was unnecessary. But then Palin hunts from a helicopter. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 208.59.135.35 (talkcontribs)

She doesn't represent us Alaskans anymore, y'know. She didn't even before she quit. —66.58.209.27 (talk) 21:45, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

didn't have to be shot and killed.Edit

they could have used some sort of tranqlizer or something to help the moose get free and let him go back into the wilderness.

They weren't trained in the use of tranquilizers. --99.65.196.167 (talk) 14:36, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

Once the moose became a threat to people on campus, there was no other option than to take it down. –Juliancolton | Talk 15:21, 18 October 2009 (UTC)
I suppose so it just seems cruel to kill a innocent animal. But I guess the moose got caught in some fencing and became a "threat" to humans. 72.73.65.104 (talk) 16:01, 18 October 2009 (UTC)
Don't get my wrong, I agree, but the safety of people needs to come first. –Juliancolton | Talk 16:07, 18 October 2009 (UTC)
I hear ya Julian they had to do what they had to do there are plenty of moose in Alaska and safety for humans is key. 72.73.65.104 (talk) 16:10, 18 October 2009 (UTC)
