I’m sure all my attentive “followers” noted this item:
So, a guy I know (hard not to know everyone around here) was coming back from Bingo at Akwesasne last Sunday night. Apparently it is a regular thing for he and his wife – huh, I would have never guessed. Anyway, they were heading South on Route 374 and at the hilly, windy section missed hitting a moose by inches. Being the kind of guy that he is, he immediately turned around to warn off any approaching motorists. Too late, the next car hit the moose head-on at speed. I heard it was a kid driving with Grandma.

I inquired about this and got the following confirmation from NYS DEC:
The moose was hit at approximately 1:28am, west of Sunset Rd between Merrill and Lyon Mountain. The 900 lb bull moose was killed by the impact. The car received extensive damage and the driver had minor injuries – complaints of head pains – but was not transported to the hospital. This has been the first moose-vehicle colision in the area this year, and the last accident was almost a year ago.
On a side note, I almost got creamed several times yesterday on my bike by BAD DRIVERS. Best to slow down and take things easy.
