Erecting a fence to keep moose off Minnesota Drive and O'Malley Road could hurt the animals and could even increase the number of collisions with cars, state wildlife biologist Jessy Coltrane said. Her agency opposes the plan by the state Department of Transportation and has provided comments to traffic planners, she said.
The project would not reduce the risk to moose or drivers because the sections of fence have to open at intersections along the five-mile stretch, she said.
"We would love to reduce moose collisions - don't get me wrong. But I just don't think that this is necessarily going to be the best way to do it," Coltrane said. "It may actually have the opposite effect."
It would be better to increase lighting in the area, clear vegetation and slow traffic, she said.
Traffic planners estimate the fence would cut the number of vehicle-moose collisions in half, the Anchorage Daily News ( ) reported. Between 2000 and 2010, there were 106 such crashes in the proposed area, according to DOT statistics.
DOT officials already plan to cut brush as part of the project to help drivers see moose sooner. But officials said the other recommendations by Coltrane would not work.

"The neighborhood was very aware of the problem; this bear had been coming to the neighborhood for a month," said Fish and Game biologist Jessy Coltrane.
Fish and Game has talked with residents there repeatedly about unsecured trash, but Coltrane said people didn't listen.
"It really didn't learn this behavior overnight," said Coltrane.
Feeding Anchorage wildlife -- ..., 11 Jan 2014 [cached]
Feeding Anchorage wildlife -- intentionally or by leaving out unsecured garbage -- is a "huge problem," said Jessy Coltrane, Anchorage-area biologist with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. She's frequently called out to deal with the consequences.
"Unfortunately, it's rare that we catch people in the act unless they're doing something really egregious that their neighbors are seeing," Coltrane said.
Fish and Game got an email complaint about Becker feeding moose on his property off Huffman Road, and the agency forwarded it to the wildlife troopers, she said.
Moose that are fed by people or that find an easy source of food in garbage tend to get aggressive, Coltrane said. The animals defend the lawns, garbage cans or trash bins where they know they can get easy food. Trash, especially plastic items, can clog up a moose's digestive tract, she said.
"When moose have found their little garbage can stash, they tend to be more cantankerous than bears around it," Coltrane said.
Negligently feeding wild game, including leaving unsecured garbage, can earn you a $310 citation, Coltrane said. Coltrane said citations are issued more frequently in the summer. She said typically only two or three citations are issued during the winter. - News: Weird News, 18 Sept 2003 [cached]
At least three moose have been caught since Sunday and another four have been reported snarled in hammocks or swing set chains over the past two weeks, said Jessy Coltrane, assistant area biologist with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.
"I get a call every day almost," she said Tuesday on her way back from rescuing the latest victim in a mountainside area on the city's east side.
"I took a hammock off a moose on Sunday.I had a call on Monday that I couldn't find.And now today."
Coltrane suggested that residents take down their hammocks or tie up swings so that bulls aren't tempted to joust.
"We're just asking people to help the moose out," she said.
