Watch Out For Them Moose!

It is that time of year for northern New Englanders to be on the lookout for moose in the roadways. The arrival of spring brings luscious green vegetation to the sides of the road earlier than in the woods and this is great foraging for the big animals looking for an easy meal.

New Hampshire alone averages around 200 moose deaths each year from vehicle collisions. These animals are big and when run into by a vehicle causes extensive damage and personal injury. They are dark colored and very difficult to see at night, often happening only when it’s too late.

So, drive carefully and be aware that these critters are out there and moving about freely or this might happen.
