Moose, pets don’t mix

West Homer Elementary School students perform a skit about moose and dog interactions at the Homer City Council meeting Monday night. From left to right are Eli Zatz, Seamus McDonough as a dog and Thomas McDonough as a moose. 

The West Homer Brickheads team won the champions award in the recent LEGO Robotics competition. This year’s theme was “Animal Allies.” For the competition, the students had to design at project improving human-animal interactions.

Using a slide presentation, students spoke about how to avoid moose-dog conflicts by leashing pets. The skit showed what happens when a loose dog meets a moose.
