Cross-file under: Stupid, stupid, stupid
For the record, I'm totally unsurprised by the following report.
...Fish and Game biologists recently tried and failed to stun the moose with a special wildlife Taser so they could remove the rope... "We got a couple shots at her, but we couldn't get both probes to stick, probably because of her thick winter hair," said Fairbanks area biologist Don Young. ...The moose "showed no reaction as if it had got shocked."

A specially-designed 'Wildlife' taser that cannot penetrate fur.
"Gee, it work so reliably on the lizards around Scottsdale, Arizona. We never thought about fur..." Duh...
I'm now standing-by for the first report of an animal dying of "excited delirium" while being tasered for ten minutes, and the mindless taser fanboys explaining how the animal deserved to die anyway...
