Species Account Note a female moose around 2 years old carrying a fetus. with black-dark
brown coloring was traveling south and crossed hwy 8 around 6:10pm
on 2-10-13 when it struck my car which was traveling east from
moscow toward troy idaho. I had enough time to take my foot off the
gas and duck my head when the moose hit my car and shattered by
windsheild flying over top of my car and landing in the ditch. The
Latah sheriff was called to the scene and case # 2013-00669 was
filed. My husband who arrived at the time was given permission to
salvage the animal, at which point he took me home and then
returned to collect the animal.
