Moose don’t need help

So, now Horizon Wind is claiming that moose on the Nor’Westers will benefit from the proposed wind farm because they will have additional pathways to browse for food (Land Uses Take Over Turbine Debate – CJ, May 22). They’re serious? How do they think the moose have managed to get around up there for the last hundred years or so without Horizon’s help building pathways?
Anybody who’s been in the Nor’Westers knows a labyrinth of old logging roads, ATV and hiking trails exist up there. Just zoom in on the area using Google Earth. All those squiggly white lines are pathways. Hundreds more exist but are hidden under the tree canopy and the satellites can’t pick them up.
No, the moose don’t need any more trails to travel, thank you all the same. They just need to be left alone in their natural habitat the way things are now.
