Alaska State Troopers cited a Wasilla man Sunday for giving a moose carrots at his home after he posted a video of the feeding on Facebook, according to a troopers spokeswoman.
A person sent a complaint to troopers after spotting the recording on 47-year-old Paul Cocker's Facebook page. Cocker narrated the video while he lured a moose closer to him in his yard off East Bogard Road and hand-fed it the carrots, said Megan Peters, troopers spokeswoman.
Troopers issued Cocker a citation for $310 for feeding wildlife.
When will the crime wave end?
(Okay, okay; I really do get it. I understand why it's not good to feed wildlife. But $10K vs. $310 ... seems a bit off, ya know?)
