Wasilla man cited in moose feeding
Alaska State Troopers say a 47-year-old Wasilla man has been cited for feeding a moose carrots at his property.
ANCHORAGE- Alaska State Troopers say a 47-year-old Wasilla man has been cited for feeding a moose carrots at his property.
Troopers say Paul Cocker was issued a $310 citation Sunday after he posted a video on Facebook of the feeding.
Someone sent a complaint to troopers after spotting the video of Cocker luring the moose in his yard and hand feeding the vegetables to the animal.
Cocker could not immediately be reached for comment Monday.
Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters says Cocker has the option to appear in court.
Earlier this month, an Anchorage man was issued a summons to appear in court to face a misdemeanor charge of intentionally feeding multiple moose cabbage on his property.
Court documents have not been filed in either case.
