Is it all just in good fun or could it be a dangerous distraction for drivers?

That has been part of the discussion on social media in recent days after a picture appeared of four moose hooves poking out of a snow bank near Swift Current.

Laura Winsor posted the photo to her Facebook page on Monday, since drawing nearly 200 comments.

First, there was debate about whether or not there was actually a moose in the snow bank or if someone had just placed the hooves there as a prank. Another photo has proven the latter to be true.

Part of the conversation has since turned to whether the joke could be a hazard.
