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.

Early fall is the breeding season for moose in northern New York. During this time moose are wandering to look for mates, leading them to areas where they are not typically seen. While this improves the opportunities for people to enjoy sightings of a moose, it also increases the danger of colliding with one on the roadway. Read the rest of this entry »

DEC Warns Motorists to be Alert for Moose in the Adirondacks
Motorists should be alert for moose on roadways in the Adirondacks and surrounding areas at this time of year – a peak of moose activity – warns the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC). I hit a deer a few years ago and totaled my car – can’t imagine a moose.
