Seen that before, in fact two fatalities a mile apart and about an hour apart. Both broadside hits. The moose is just tall enough to cause a whole bunch of grief.

I don't see how this lady survived Just a broken wrist from what I understand.
I believe it happened up around your part of the world.

Looks like it could be be a Nova Scotia license plate ???
Probably on the Cabot Trail, Cape Breton Highland, Cheticamp area if in fact it occurred in Nova Scotia One moose fatality there this year.
New Brunswick have a lot of moose, in fact they are erecting "moose fences" just for that reason Lots of moose collisions.

She's a lucky girl for sure. Chaulk one up for the seatbelts maybe Thumbs up

Yup... in a jet plane! Laugh We have some of the same issues with moose in the Cape Breton area (Hammer's stompin' grounds). They are deadly.

We hit a moose when I was hunting with my father up in Maine. My friend up there told us "Don't drive to Jackman at night, you have no buisiness driving that highway at night" did we listen....of course not! We left the truck in Maine and took the moose home in the trunk of the rental car.
