    Serious flaws have marred the province’s strategy to reduce moose-vehicle collisions, says wildlife expert Tony Clevenger. According to Clevenger, Newfoundland’s moose control policy between 2003 and 2011 was based on flawed science. And the collision mitigation methods in place at that time — public awareness campaigns, signs and brush cutting — were ineffective and poorly managed. Clevenger, a Montana State University research scientist based in Alberta, testified Tuesday in the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador as part of the ongoing class-action lawsuit involving moose-vehicle collisions. “I can see no explanation why the Newfoundland Department of Transportation and Works has...

Days later, some students launched an online petition that called her comments "offensive and unnecessarily derogatory." A record of the comments was not available. But students attending told their parents she criticized gays and lesbians and made inflammatory remarks about single and divorced parents.... Some students told...

    In this dramatic video, a snowmobiler is traveling along a remote snowmobile trail.   A moose is blocking the trail, and the snowmobiler does everything they can to defuse the situation without bloodshed.  They make considerable noise to warn the moose that they are there.  Snowmobiles do not have a reverse, and the track is narrow and hemmed in by thick woods.  To get off the snowmobile would make the snowmobiler much more vulnerable.   In the deep, fluffy snow, he and or his machine are likely to bog down.   Unknown to the viewer, a companion snowmobiler is coming up...

The animal was likely drunk from eating fermented apples. With the help of police and rescue services, the 45-year-old Johansson later managed to set the moose free in part by sawing off tree branches.

    Heavy snows in parts of Alaska are taking a deadly toll on moose as deep snowdrifts force the animals into hazardous detours on plowed roads and railroad tracks, prompting one group to seek declaration of a “moose emergency.” State and local officials said the ambling animals are being killed in increasing numbers in rail and road collisions.

The average is roughly 270 for the winter, he said. The state-owned...
