How big is that moose? It looks huge!
Moose are actually the largest living species in the deer family! As adults, they are incredibly big and powerful creatures. Best to avoid hitting one if at all possible!
This lucky man is out of danger, but his car ride could have had ended fatally, when he collided with a moose last Thursday, July 3, 2014, on Route 15, near Spectacle Pond, on the Monson/Shirley town line, Maine. As shown in the following pictures, the moose was wedged inside the car.
Witnesses said the driver appeared to have non-life-threatening injuries, but police haven’t released information about his condition. The vehicle was towed to downtown Greenville. Too bad there are no wildlife overpasses in the area.
Ashley Stoddard took the pictures. She said a lot of people were stopping to take pictures of the moose in the car.
