Salted Roads Moose Taste Treat

Swedish highway experts say their studies show that mixing sugar with the salt spread out over icy asphalt is better for the environment and car tires.

The question is whether moose – or European elk – will be even more attracted to the roads to lick the salt – since the biggest cause of highway accidents in this well-forested nation are collisions with deer, moose and other wild animals.

The experts are now watching to see which flavor is the moose’s favorite.
