Country Moose and City Moose

I think I read a story about this when I was a small child. In the Alaska Dispatch News: Scientists find genetic divide between city moose and country moose:

the Kenai Peninsula moose in the study had significantly less “richness” in their alleles, even though the Anchorage population is smaller.

The moose in Anchorage have more diversity. That sounds like our schools and neighborhoods.
