I was looking for free cam girls to chat with and I cam across this crazy pic lol!
jjjones that is a moose fetus the cow must have been pregnant
The damage on the shoulder of the cow moose in picture six is in the shape of a moose.
One of the most devastating aspect of a car taking on a moose is that he is so tall his body comes thru the windshield. Years ago my brother clipped a moose with the right fender of a Mack truck($10,000 touch). The moose was badly hurt but far from death and my brother refused to let him suffer in the ditch. Without a rifle along he had to improvise and put the animal out of its misery. It was a brutal task and very tough on him emotionally but it was his responsibility. That would seem odd to a non hunter that someone who shoots these animals as a sport would show such compassion in this circumstance. Perhaps they would see his act as nothing but brutality and choose to ignore the element of compassionate. Leaving the animal to suffer until the 'authorities' could deal with untidy business would likely be their idea of addressing the problem. That is the advantage of the hunter, we have experience and respect for these wild creatures that calls upon us to take personal responsibilty for them when they are most in need. I would do no less for my dog though it would break my heart. So, I say way to go brother and the same to any others who are able to shoulder such tasks.
Remember Folks, Moose and Driving do not mix. Jest aside I really do like these things and think it sad for the animals and a tragedy for the drivers when these things happen. I hope the drivers in the pictures presented survived.
my sister drove her Honda under a huge moose few years back. Both side mirrors broken and shield shattered and dents on hood and doors and still running, nothing like in the pics. the Yukon moose are huge, huge animals. gotta slow down.
If I lived in Alaska, I'd say buck the rules and put a 12 inch lift on the pickup. Damn!
Makes me want to invest in a big ol' Montana brush guard or maybe I should just drive the storm chasers Tornado mobile and just keep truckin'
"moosehaps"! brilliant word, alert merriam webster!
In my parts its a good investment in high quality headlights, and many folks drive the highways at night with one foot on the gas the other on the brake.Annually around 1 dozen people are killed here by moose collision.
Years ago I saw a bull that got creamed by a passenger train, it didnt derail the cars but whatta mess.
When you think about what a 150-200 # deer can do, just thinking about an 800 to 1100 # moose would do to your car at highway speed. That's gonna leave a mark.
me and the wife missed a deer the other night.close call!but a 800lb moose id say the moose wins every time.
When the put up the umpteen mile fence along Eielson AFB Alaska all the way down to Moose Creak really caused a lot of accidents. Moose couldn't cross the fence and wound up in the middle of the highway!
