Canadians, officials have an important message for you: "Do not let moose lick your car."

(CNN)Canadians, officials have an important message for you: "Do not let moose lick your car. "

Officials in Jasper, an alpine town in Canada's Alberta province, have put up signs asking motorists to avoid allowing moose to lick the salt, a treat moose find hard to resist, off their cars.

"They usually get it from salt lakes in the park, but now they realized they can also get road salt that splashes onto cars. "

At the Jasper National Park, where people often park on the side of the road in hopes of catching a glimpse of the moose, letting the animals near your car is actually a serious danger.

By allowing moose to lick the salt off your car, they will become habituated with being around cars.

"Moose and cars are not a good mix.

If you hit the moose with your car, you take the legs out from under it and it's going through your windshield," Young said.

The best way to stop a moose from coming close to your car is simply driving away when you see them approaching, he added.

Another important warning Young and other officials continue to emphasize is the importance of staying inside your car and avoiding any interactions with the wildlife, including moose.

The wolf population is decreasing, which means there's fewer predators and the moose population is going up as a result," Young said.
