CROOKSTON, Minn. — A moose is dead after being struck by two sports utility vehicles in northwestern Minnesota.

The State Patrol says an SUV pulling a boat hit the moose "square on" shortly after 8 p.m. Sunday east of Crookston. The SUV rolled in the ditch, and the moose came to rest in the northbound lane.

The moose was then hit by a second SUV, which also went off the road.

The Crookston Daily Times reports both drivers and their passengers were wearing seat belts and apparently were not hurt.

The patrol says the moose was killed when it was hit by the second SUV.

So, the moose WAS NOT wearing a safety belt and didn't have a reflective vest?

I can see the new legislation coming.

I wonder if Bill O’Reilly will take a survey over who was the PINHEAD in this accident.

Watch out for the killer rabbits... but at least the moose won’t be biting.

Uh....
Two SUVs to take out a moose?
Just use a .308 next time. It's much cheaper and the meat won't be so bruised.

Did anyone call Sarah Palin to come and make the moose into chili? I want to put her on a cooking show - besides Moose Chili, she can show us how to “fillet, bake and shake a Democrat” in 15 minutes.
