The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department say moose are on the loose

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department say moose are on the loose and drivers need to be alert and cautious.  Moose are more likely to be crossing roadways at this time of year, especially after dark or early in the morning because this is breeding season for moose. “Motorists hit 49 moose on Vermont highways during 2021,  and 23 so far this year,” said State Game Warden Major Justin Stedman.  “Stedman is asking drivers to be especially careful and for people to enjoy watching moose from a distance.  He said moose can be unpredictable and dangerous if you get too close and they feel cornered or get irritated.”
