Here in Ohio, we have deer crossing signs. When I was in Maine, it was Moose crossing signs. Just saying --
IBM in Manassas, VA had a deer crash through a window in the very early morning hours. It was quite the mess. Apparently, it saw its reflection in the window(s) and charged. I suspect the same of your moose. Although I recall a story of traffic in Anchorage being delayed due to a collision between a pickup truck and a bear.
A bit rambly this morning.
