The sad thing is that the driver/passenger(s) were probably hurt and possibly killed.

Moose are fine in their natural environment but near the highway they get dangerous and unpredictable.  One can be standing quietly beside the road and at the last second he will dart out in front of you. I've had several really close calls myself, day and night.. They cause much injury death and property damage each year.

Short of shooting any one seen within view of a state highway (the truly politically incorrect solution..   they're "cute", you know) I've wondered if maybe we try to bait them with 50 pound bags of grits they would swell up and explode....

Same with hitting a horse.  The car actually goes under them and they come through the windshield.

When I first glanced at that this morning, I thought it was fake. Wouldn't there be an awful mess of blood?

I've hit one. We all escaped but I'm betting the moose wasn't doing well.

I was going under the speed limit at 4-5AM. They both ran off the road and I took my foot off the brake and then they ran back into the road. I aimed between them and one got a bad, bad headache. Not fun.

I saw the other pics, and there was plenty of blood & guts.  What struck me funny was the name on the side of the towtruck...Moosehead Towing!   :D :D :D
