Second I-84 Moose Sighting Has CT Officials Warning of Potential Hazard
On Wednesday (5/10/23) we reported that a large moose had been spotted in the area of Routes 63 and 73 in Watertown.
Time to get your moose tracker warmed up because a second sighting was reported today by Connecticut Fish and Wildlife. On Friday, around 11:30 am CFW posted the following to their Facebook page:
Moose near roadways pose a hazard potential, especially during early morning and evening hours."
I love digital animal tracking, there is nothing more satisfying than telling people "hey look, over there, it's a living thing!" The reactions are always predictable and hilarious. Here are a few of my favorite stock responses:
- "Wait, there are wild animals in CT? DUH"
- "Who cares, just leave them alone and they'll leave you alone."
- "____ is to blame if we all just____these moose would not be in danger."
- "If you'd let us shoot a few of these, there would not be so many."
- "People need to be more careful because I'm careful and I love animals and I'm better than you."
- "I saw one in my living room 5 minutes ago."
- "They're highly intelligent animals, most people don't know they are experts in quantum mechanics."
- "They have a keen sense of smell, a moose can smell the anus of a pigeon from 8 miles away."
Facebook is the best at being the worst.
