Canadian wildlife animal experts want drivers to speed up if they happen to see a Moose eyeing your car as a salty snack.
Road signs in the alpine town of Jasper, Canada, where salt-obsessed moose are now posing a danger to themselves — and drivers — when salt-spattered cars appear in their vicinity.
“Oh hi, moose. We have strict instructions about your snack habits,” one Twitter user wrote on the platform alongside images of the extremely direct and specific road sign and a photo of a moose. The viral tweet has racked up over 46,000 likes since being posted this month.
