Vehicles stopping to view moose calves creating hazardous conditions on George Parks Highway.
DENALI PARK, Alaska: Denali National Park and Preserve staff reminds visitors to use caution when stopping to view wildlife and that no photo opportunity is worth a human life.
Park staff have observed visitors walking or running in highway travel lanes, crossing the road in front of fast-moving traffic, parking erratically in unsafe locations, and leaving vehicle doors open in order to view or photograph moose calves feeding along the highway near the intersection of Denali National Park entrance. The situation is causing extremely unsafe conditions for drivers, pedestrians, and the calves themselves.
Additional park information is available at nps.gov/dena or 907-683-9532 from 9 am to 4:30 pm daily.
