Beware Falling Moose Open Trackbacks

The AP reports from Anchorage Alaska.

Trooper Howard Peterson […] was driving Feb. 2 on the Seward Highway south of Anchorage when something big and black fell out of the sky about 20 feet in front of his patrol car. “Falling rock!” he thought, ready to steer clear if it bounced onto the highway.

The thing didn’t roll or shatter. It turned out to be a moose that fell from cliffs next to the highway.

Drivers often see Dall sheep on the cliffs but rarely moose. Peterson estimates the animal fell 150 feet or more.

It isn’t every day you see a falling moose. What other things don’t you see every day?

Open thread and open trackbacks.
