When Moose Fly!

Adult moose

“But officer really he fell out of the sky and landed right in front of me.” I can just see the look of consternation on the officer’s face as he was taking that report.

Sound farfetched?  No it really happened in Clinton, Maine southwest of Bangor along Interstate Highway 95.

Seems a 500 pound moose leapt the guardrail at the wrong place (an overpass of I-95) and fell 18 feet to the highway below. Did he get hit by a car or truck? Hell no, the fall killed him. A motorist was stopped under the overpass at the time and witnessed the moose’s demise. He immediately swore off drinking (just kidding).

Moral of the story for Bullwinkles (moose), look before you leap.
