And now she's learned that humans are kind and generous and when she's older she'll be able to learn just how kind and generous we are when a hunter puts a slug in her neck.

Joke all you want but moose are a big problem in Newfoundland.  They're like stray dogs or raccoons elsewhere.  They aren't native to the island and lack natural predators like wolves or the Beothuk.

To be truly Newfoundlandy it needs cod, screech, an unintelligible accent, and a mainlander being told in an unintelligible accent to drink the screech and kiss the cod.

No, the moose would have to go to Alberta to get a job in the oil patch and start getting arrested every weekend for various drunken incidents.

Not unintelligible, faster and a couple centuries out of date, with allot of old English mixed in.

Moose vs. car incidents tend to be fatal for all concerned.

they gave a predator, it is bad drivers who go to fast at night to respond in time when they enter their field of vision

my understanding is that is can be very difficult
to take pictures and upload them to the internet

when dealing with stories such as this one.

It would help if the provincial government would start using fences instead of just putting up signs telling you the number of moose killed on the road as you drive by them.

At first I pictured Anthony Kiedis in the back seat with a black eye, a hot chick and baby moose, not giving a fark. But this is okay, too.

Half my family's from St. John's, the other half is from for far 'round the bay you can't find it unless they show you.  I got growed up with some really, really freaky accents.  Every time I've dragged someone to Newfoundland to meet the 'fam, they spend sunday dinner grinning and nodding.  No goddamned idea what anyone's saying.  It gives me a certain dark satisfaction to be able to decipher Newfenese.

/No clue what anyone from the Burin is saying.
//Not.  A Goddamned. Clue.

Seconded.

Uncle runs a concrete finishing business out there, won't hire 'em because of that.

Father in law was HR at a big plant, won't hire 'em because of that.

After Ocean Ranger, they had to pass laws to force the hiring of them for the oil fields.

Rumour mill has it that one of the Master Mariners in that incident got his sea time in a 44 foot fishing boat, and had a buddy in ships safety sign off on it. That wasn't the worst of it.

Individually great, wonderful, proud people.

Work with them in large groups, and you'll find out what they are about. Did it for a decade. Be happy to never set foot there or work with any in my lifetime. I'm certain they'd be happy about it too.

Give me gooseberry marmalade (or berry wine) and I will hide them for you.

Are you saying visiting there once and watching "Doyle's War" "Republic of Doyle" doesn't make me an expert on The Rock?
