I've... seen things you people wouldn't believe...
Fireworks trucks on fire off the shoulder of the road.
I watched Roman candles glitter in the dark near the broken lift gate.
All those... moose... will be lost in time, like tears... in... rain.

*didn't RTFA

Even growing up in the northwoods, I failed to truly grasp the size of an adult moose.

Until I found one blocking my path while portaging a canoe to a camping island in the Boundary Waters.

Think...skinny, angry horse. With antlers the size of a volkswagon.

Well, if you're going to kill a moose, you might as well enjoy the experience.

The moose was pushed onto the hwy by renegade Canadians getting ready for the 4th of July?

"Was he on his way to Tim Hortons listening to Rush and trying to put maple syrup on his peameal bacon while also trying to open a Labatt's for a mountie who was eating poutine and watching 'kids in the hall' on the back of the snowmobile when he swerved to miss a beaver thus hitting the moose?

No?

Not the most Canadian headline evar then.

Skinny and horse sized? You must have seen a yearling. Female moose are ~ 6 ft at the shoulder, about 3 ft wide at the chest and ~ 8 ft chest to butt. Male moose are bigger. First year I lived up here in Fairbanks a male moose charged a city bus during rutting season. Broke the door and the right half of the windshield, shook it's head and wandered off. I can defiantly see how hitting a moose could total even a big truck.

I worked with an ex-Air Force commo guy during the Cold War.  They did a bottom-up study of all the risks that could affect the microwave towers linking the SAC installations in Alaska: weather, Russian spies, permafrost melts, etc.  The number one risk was moose.

Wawa, Ontario. The town that comes with its own sound-effects. Wa-wa-WA!

I don't recall seeing any news from there except maybe that incestuous child-molesting ring, but perhaps that was some other village. That was more like a redneck party gone bad, though, than a ring.

Here are some other headliness from wawa-news.com:

Are you missing a dog, or two?

 Kevin Vopni visits Wawa!Friday, 07 June 2013

And well may you ask: Who in the Hell is Kevin Vopni?

He is a guy on a bicycle, a nursing student who is cycling across Canada to raise funds for cancer, or possibly, against cancer. Yep, a fireworks truck hitting a moose is a God-send to Wawa-news.com.

There's also a Petawawa, but that one has an Canadian Air Force Base and thus makes news on a fairly regular basis as a result of Canadians being sent to places like Bosnia or Afghanistan, or coming back from there to ride the Highway of Heroes to their final resting places.

Alaska vs. Eastern moose.  Wikipedia, look 'em up.  I've seen all varieties, none of which I'd want to hit with a truck.

-Western moose in Kootenay NP, BC a little over a week ago.  Probably a 3y/o based on antler development :)

No, it was a male.

I only meant 'skinny' from the 'stand next to a Clydesdale some time' perspective.

The few I've met in the wild were massive creatures. Ornery too. That was what I was trying to say, and apparently failed to convey very well.

You can tell I'm not canadian, I can't even moose right, eh?

Last time I saw a Moose I swear it was as tall as an elephant.

Yes, I was drunk.

Ever been charged by one while drunk? It was my own fault, of course. I kept thinking that if I approached gently he would let me pet him or something (I'm known for my ballsy stupid risk-taking). Anyway, it's funny how absolute terror can inspire the human body to feats it can't accomplish in normal situations, evidenced by the fact that I apparently ran away at speeds approaching 90 mph, screaming like a schoolgirl at a Beatles concert in 1965.

I'm glad I'd just put my drink down prior to reading this.  You have my condolences....and my LOLs.
