How many moose are too many moose?
State Trooper Dennis Quint, responding to a car-moose collision in July, collided with a moose on Route 1 in Cyr Plantation. Fortunately, with some cuts on his head, he was ok. So were the folks in the car crash to which Quint was responding.
Others have not been as lucky. Just days before Quint’s collision, newspapers reported the death of a Brewer man who hit a moose in Howland, and another collision in Monson. That one involved David Richards, the exceptional director of the Margaret Chase Smith Library in Skowhegan.
David was lucky. The moose landed right on top of his small Hyundai sedan, trapping him inside the car with a variety of injuries including cuts and bruises to his head. But he survived relatively unharmed, a miracle, really.
