Link: Homer News Calls are rushing into the Homer office of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game about moose that have large "tumors" all over their bodies. The good news is this is a benign disease with no discernible health risk to the moose. The bad news is these unattractive moose won't make the cover of Alaska Magazine. These moose have benign epithelial tumors, or papillomas. In common terms, they have warts. And the warts can be up to 6 inches across.
