Nikiski bus hits moose

Posted: September 17, 2013 - 10:16am  |  Updated: September 17, 2013 - 11:09am

Nikiski Middle and High School Bus 18 hit a moose driving to school today that Paul Johnson, of Nikiski, had hit earlier in the morning. The students on the bus, Vice Principal Shane Bostic said, were late for school.

Bus 18 hit the moose at 6:45 a.m. today, Alaska State Trooper Marc Hendrickson.

Johnson had hit the moose before the bus and driven down a side street, Hendrickson said. 

When Bus 18 hit the moose, the animal pushed in the bus’s bumper and splattered excrement down the passenger side of the vehicle, Hendrickson said. 

More information is to follow.

Educated moose?

Hardly seems fair that a moose trying to educate himself was killed while driving to school.

More research needed on road

More research needed on road kills and thats why those who retrieve the dead animals must take their teeth and legbone to F&G. Why did this moose get killed crossing the roadway on the way to school is apparently something they find out from further study of the teeth & bones. At least someone will be feed from this sacrifice for higher learning.
I got one monday morning near kenai for my church, the calf will feed several people and i'm glad we have this program in AK unlike other states that just allow the meat to go to waste.

Research?

I'll agree research is a good thing, but let's keep that research grounded in reality, ...no one can find out why a moose got hit on a road from looking at the teeth and leg bone of a roadkill.

I'm afraid you've been led to a very wrong conclusion.
