Why did the moose cross the Maine Turnpike?

Wandering moose slows Turnpike traffic
http://news.mainetoday.com

Drivers along the Maine Turnpike in Hallowell faced a different kind of obstacle during Friday's morning commute.

A young moose was apparently trying to decide whether to cross the busy highway near the Winthrop Street overpass.

State troopers and game wardens tried to slow traffic in order to help the animal along, but it decided to head back into the woods.

State police said that salt and vegetation along the roads attract moose. They urged motorists to be aware of the animals, because they can appear on a roadway without warning.

I would prefer to have an encounter with a mature moose rather than a young one. The older ones don't seem so confused when meeting vechicles.

Ya... and those adult ones tend to be instant death when you hit them. Much better then suffering after hitting a baby moose Wink

I like that theres more meat on the big ones. If you do survive, theres plenty to go around.....mmmmmmm moose meat is the best.
I'm going to get my permit this year.....I've only applied for 20 years with no success. But this is the one.
The question is was the moose an undocumented moose from south of the border who came up here to pick broccoli in Wasburn?
If so kick him or her out, too! Razz

I think the burgers taste great fresh, but once it is froze, it's not the same.

I like my moose meat stir-fried. cheers

I hope you're joking! Moose meat is the best wild game meat I have ever tasted. I would rather have moose over deer. I find it comparable to beef.

This goes along with another post about the guy euthanizing his neighbors cat.
MMMMMMMmoose meat.
I think a wood chip truck does the best at tenderizing moose up on moose alley between Patten and Ashland
