HAINES, Alaska (AP) - Students at Haines High School thought dressing in camo this week was just a part of spirit week, but the hunter's attire turned into a fitting garment when a moose carcass was delivered to the school's lunch program. KTUU-TV reports Alaska Department of Fish and Game officials were forced to euthanize a moose on Tuesday when a vehicle likely struck it. The carcass was then gutted, skinned, quartered and kept cool until the next day, when juniors and seniors processed the meat under supervision of the school district's food service coordinator.
