Where is he?
This sign is just a mile or so from my house, and every time I see it, I imagine a moose to be looking both ways, waiting patiently to cross the road not far from the sign. Maybe he'll give me a nod as I pass, and mouth something like "How ya doin', eh?". I'm actually disappointed when I don't see him.
On a more serious note, someone in the family (not me) was recently pulled over by a state trooper not far from this sign, because the speed limit on that road is 40 mph. If you hit a moose, it can be a pretty nasty thing indeed; for you, your car, and the animal. The good thing though, from what I understand, is that if you do hit a moose, you or the local food bank gets a freezer full. I think (almost positive) that it's against the law to hit one, and not salvage the meat.
And this is another reason why I like living in different parts of the world...because you learn something new everyday.
