Moose On The Loose! Drive Carefully. [VIDEO]

A reminder from the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office yesterday to be on the look out for moose venturing into the roadways.  Franklin County is in western Maine but the reminder holds true just about everywhere!

There have been collisions with moose on Route 27 in Wyman Township, Route 4 in Sandy River Plantation, Route 16 in Coplin Plantation and Route 4 in Rangeley. “Those driving the roads, especially in the early morning and evening hours, are encouraged to drive with extreme caution,” Lt. David Rackliffe said. “Moose can be frightened by the sound of your approaching vehicle and run into the roadway.”

Most motor vehicle crashes with moose lead to extensive motor vehicle damage and frequently the death of the moose. No one was injured in the moose crashes in the past few days, he said. That’s not always the case. The Sheriff’s Office reminds drivers to use caution and give full attention to driving and wear their seat belt.

When driving at night, the general rule of thumb is “do not out run your headlights”!

The following video was uploaded to You Tube just this month.  It shows a moose running on Interstate 95.
