After four people were killed in crashes involving moose last year, there's a new push to remind Saskatchewan motorists to watch out for the massive animals.

A few summers ago we drove all over our four maritime provinces. We kept our eyes peeled the ENTIRE time. They are BIG, so we knew we needed to be careful. No accidents, but we did count 24 moose over 10 tens of travelling.

I can see where this is leading...It will result in killing moose so that they're not in way anymore and people can happily go back to speeding along the highway. It's always the animal that gets to pay the ultimate price.

I thought we were bad enough here, with our wombats and kangaroos! THEY can do enough damage, but a moose... well, you would think you might see one coming, they are so BIG!

We have the same problem up here in Maine. Moose are huge, and because of their size, relatively fearless. They are also so tall that if you do hit one, it tends to fall right on top of your car, and so heavy, they crush the roof (and you under it). And it's not just driving: moose are dangerous even off the road: we had an article in our local paper (Bangor Daily News) back in February, about a woman who was out for a snowshoe hike in the woods, with her dogs - they started barking, and she saw they'd come up on a bull moose grazing near a tree. She went to pull the dogs away, he charged her, and knocked her down. She lost a snowshoe, but got away from him. Said she is six feet tall, and the moose towered over her - his shoulder was head height for her. Made her way home, slowly - ended up with frostbite on both legs. Enjoy looking at those funny looking critters -- but watch out for them on the road, and stay well away!

People need to start paying more attention when they drive and not be distracted by phones and other electronics.
