ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Love is in the air for Adirondack moose, and state officials are urging drivers to watch out as the animals wander in search of mates.

The Department of Environmental Conservation says early fall is the breeding season for moose in northern New York, leading them to travel into areas where they’re not typically seen — and increasing the danger of highway collisions.

The agency says 10 moose-vehicle accidents were reported in New York last year, but there hasn’t been a human fatality from a collision with a moose.

DEC advises motorists to be alert for moose at dawn and dusk, especially during September and October. Slow down if a moose is standing near the road, as it may bolt into the road at the last minute.
