Print More

Drivers are being warning to be on the lookout for moose this time of year.

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department says in the spring moose are more likely to cross roads, especially at night and in the early morning as they move to spring feeding areas.

More moose are hit by vehicles in May and June than at any other time of the year.

September and October is also an active time, when moose are breeding.

Col. Robert Rooks of the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department says 327 moose were hit in Vermont last year.
