A woman was taken to the Whitbourne Clinic for observation Sunday evening after the car she was in collided with a moose on the Trans-Canada Highway.

The accident happened just before 8:30 p.m. in the Hodgewater Line area about 100 kilometres west of St. John’s.

RCMP said the woman's injuries were not serious.

Early Monday morning, RCMP from the Holyrood detachment reported there was a moose-vehicle accident between Makinsons and Bay Roberts.

The moose was killed. Police didn’t say if anyone in the vehicle was injured.

My son and I are headed out tomorrow to see if we can find any moose to fill our freezer, so we can appreciate this story. We use a .30-06 up here, though, not a car. LOL

She was fortunate. Most times it doesn’t end well for the driver after they hit a Moose.

Moose bites can be very nasty, mind you.

We have many moose encounters by out cabin in Wyoming, usually resulting in injury. They’re known to be mean.

One morning as I was walking the dogs when we came across a big one. It didn’t notice us until the dog started barking at it. Then it turned towards us in the charging position. We graciously backed away and were spared the Wrath of the Moose.

Was she by any chance carving her initials on the moose with the sharpened end of a toothbrush?

That’s why we need legislation against stuning beebers while driving!

"Big Moose" has been wandering the roads, lost and listless since Archie comics went all gay.

Moose are herbivores. They eat leaves and bark from trees and the residue that ends up on the forest floor is cellulose poop. When it dries out it is much like a wood beed that you can buty at Hobby Lobby.

Shellac them and drill holes, add ear ring holders or gold or silver strings and voila you have Moose turd Jewelry. No smell!

Up here in Alaska? Tourists :-)
Never seen an Alaskan lady wear one. They’re really considered something of a joke.

My former boss had a 90 minute drive to work. In dark early morning in the middle of winter he was on a two lane road with traffic oncoming when a big moose crossed the road ahead. My boss had nowhere to go. He hit the moose, which bounced along the passenger side of the huge SUV. One dead moose, one banged and dented SUV. Boss not injured.
