Impala

“A proposed Anchorage ban on spiked metal fences aimed at protecting moose from impaling themselves is off the books after a veto by the city’s mayor … [since] the incidence of moose gorings was too low for such changes. … Biologists estimate that between two and four moose get impaled annually while trying to clear these fences.” (http://uk.reuters.com/article/2014/10/31/us-usa-moose-alaska-idUKKBN0IK02B20141031)

While local meat processors cheered the decision, a representative for the moose community said they felt shafted.
