The Moose Are Loose


A warning to motorists from the Temiskaming OPP.

Be on the lookout for animals while driving.

June was a very dangerous month with 11 accidents involving vehicles and moose, and one where a vehicle struck a bear.

The majority of the accidents took place along a stretch of Highway 11 in Temagami.

They all occurred between 10 pm and 4 am so those are the times to be extra careful.

The advise lowering your speed and constantly scanning the side of the road to avoid showing up on this list.
