What is illegal in Alaska?

Answered by John Hunt

In Alaska, there are some unique and interesting laws that may seem strange to outsiders. Let’s take a closer look at some of the things that are illegal in Alaska.

1. Whispering in someone’s ear while they are moose hunting: It may sound bizarre, but in Alaska, it is actually illegal to whisper in someone’s ear while they are out hunting for moose. This law is likely in place to prevent any distractions or accidents while hunting, ensuring the safety of both hunters and wildlife.

2. Pushing a live moose out of a moving airplane: Another unusual law in Alaska is that it is illegal to push a live moose out of a moving airplane. While this may seem like common sense, it is worth noting that Alaska has many remote areas where airplanes are used for transportation. The law is likely in place to protect the moose population and prevent any unnecessary harm or disturbance to these animals.

3. Kangaroos in barber shops: It is strictly prohibited to have kangaroos in barber shops at any time in Alaska. This law may seem random, but it is likely in place to ensure the safety and well-being of both the kangaroos and the customers. Barber shops can be crowded and noisy, which may not be suitable for exotic animals like kangaroos.

4. Viewing moose from an airplane: It is also illegal to view moose from an airplane in Alaska. This law may be in place to prevent any disturbance to the animals or their natural habitats. It is important to respect wildlife and observe them from an appropriate distance to avoid any negative impact on their behavior or environment.

These laws, although strange and specific, are put in place to protect the wildlife and ensure the safety of both the animals and the people in Alaska. While it may be amusing to learn about these unique laws, it is important to remember that they serve a purpose in preserving the natural beauty and ecosystem of the state.
