Sunday collision proves the season of moose being on our highways is here

(Moose on the loose 07 05 24 BM) web

Here’s proof that moose season has arrived on highways in the region.

At about 10:30pm Sunday, a moose was killed when it was hit by a car on Hwy. 11, west of  Cochrane. OPP say a hoof came through the driver’s side window.  The driver and passenger suffered only minor injuries.


  • Obey the speed limit, risk of injury is greater at higher speeds.
  • Be cautious in areas of reduced visibility, hills, curves, and dense vegetation.
  • Use your high beams when possible (low beams for oncoming traffic)
  • Keep your eyes on the road, scanning for wildlife. A passenger can do this too.
  • Stay alert and avoid distractions such as cell phones.
  • If you have the choice – avoid driving the highway higher risk times – dusk and dawn.
  • Seatbelts are a must; risk of serious injury is greatly increased in unbelted persons involved in a moose collision.
  • Be cautious not to veer into oncoming traffic and be aware of vehicles around you when braking.
