DEEP Reminds Drivers Of Moose Danger

The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection says moose sightings have been reported recently in Farmington, New Milford and East Haddam.  The agency says drivers should use extra care in areas where moose have been reported.  100 to 150 moose are believed to reside in Connecticut.

DEEP says moose can become aggressive if they feel threatened when people or pets approach,  and may behave in an unpredictable fashion.

Because moose are dark, they are difficult for drivers to see at night, and because of their height, are more likely to fall through the car’s windshield.

DEEP says all collisions involving a moose or a deer should be reported to local, state or DEEP wildlife police.  Residents also are encouraged to report sightings on the DEEP website.
