Driver wants compensation for moose killed by her car
WMTW.com ^ | 12/01/02

Posted on 12/01/2002 12:08:21 PM PST by socal_parrot

ACTON (AP) -- A York County woman wants to be paid for the moose that was killed by her car but given away by police.
 Lisa Pierce of Acton said a York County sheriff's deputy may have thought he was doing her a favor because she's a woman -- but he was wrong. And now Pierce wants to be compensated for the moose meat that she says is hers.
 Pierce hit the moose with her car on Nov. 5. State law says a big-game animal killed by a car goes to the person
who hit it -- as long as police are called and the vehicle is damaged.
 Pierce said she knew about the law but lost track of the moose when three children riding with her were being treated for injuries in the accident.
 In the meantime, a neighbor hauled the carcass away with a tractor. The neighbor wanted to be paid -- and when the moose was butchered, the price went up.
 Pierce complained to York County sheriff's officials. Police say they won't give her cash -- but are willing to give her the next moose struck in York County.

Sounds fair.

Very nice. I almost spilled coffee on my keyboard, you two! :-)

Most people probably don't want the animals, but there is an awful lot of excellent meat on a moose, no matter where you hit it. In some ways, she is lucky that they were able to find the moose. Sometimes they run off.

So, the neighbor said "All your moose are belong to us." Sheesh, what a loser. I hope he gets bit by the next moose.

I'm sure this women will be showered with all kinds of series offers of moose meat with cheese to go with it.

Well, did I miss anything?

Another fine example of the local constables not enforcing (or being aware) of the very laws (statues, ordinances) they are paid to uphold.

Make the cop who gave away the moose pay the woman who hit the moose just compensation. Either that, or fire him/her for delinquency of duty.

Are we still talking about a moose?

"LOL...Or maybe a buck or two. "

the whole idea of the plan; is to get the carcass removed "right now!"...if she didn't want to worry about it right then....
then she's to late...no doe, no buck, n no cheese either...

The police should agree to give the Moose Money to her, and then send her the neighbor's bill for hauling it away and cutting it up.

She probably didn't have her rights explained to her-

"You have the right to remain silent, the right to counsel and the right to moose, as long as you get it out of here quickly. If you can't move it quickly, the guy with the closest tractor wins."

Well yes. Then she should be the one to pay for the moose processing not PD. Just give her the next moose and let her foot the bill.

Ah, but did she consent to having the moose hauled and butchered in the first place?

offers of moose meat with cheese to go with it

In order to claim any cheese, she will have to provide evidence of her running over a cow. Goats don't count unless you run over one while you are driving a camel.

"The police should agree to give the Moose Money "

there is no "moose money, its just "common sense". usually there is a "call list", of locals that will come n haul off a carcass, so the "state" aka "taxpayer" doesn't have to "foot the bill".....
if the driver doesn't or can't remove the carcass, then, the call-out list is used....
c'mon, she didn't remove the moose; if she had driven home n left the carcass on the road; n you came along n hit it; would you still want her to "get the doe..."?

Under state law it was her moose.
They took if from her and gave it away to someone else.

Yes, I would believe, mewzilla.. and I went back to catch your nice reference to tort lawyers. (moose bites sister).
Sorry I didn't catch that.
I know you've been around a while. I should have looked at the name first before responding.

There have been many posts and replies from those new to the forum...

Loser is supposed to be spelled 'looser', and you didn't mention anything about your sister when referencing the moose.
