ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - An iconic Anchorage bull moose has been killed in a car crash early Saturday morning.

Don Dyer, the President of the Alaska Moose Federation, says Hook the moose was killed before 5:00 a.m. around 2600 E. 5th Ave.

Dyer said while Hook did not have his trademark rack, he did have some unique physical features that were easily identifiable including a cleft dewlap and a scar on the right-side of his nose.

The Alaska Moose Federation collects the bodies of moose for charities that then use their meat. Dyer explained the charity who claimed Hook donated his skull and hide to the Alaska Moose Federation. Dyer said Hook will now be turned into a full-body mount to honor his memory.
