Only in Canada would there be a car-licking moose warning.
Alberta Parks issued the warning for Chester Lake and Burstall pass trailhead parking lots in Kananaskis, Alberta .
Officials recommend motorists to keep at least 30 metres away from any moose,
and to sound a car horn or use a remote door alarm to deter the animals.
"Do not attempt to push moose away from your vehicle while on foot," the warning reads.
Many animals, including moose, have a natural need for salt in order to maintain good health
and if there is no natural source available, they will search elsewhere for replenishment.
