MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife is reminding drivers across the state to be on the lookout for moose in the road.

Moose are more likely to be crossing roadways in the spring, especially after dark or early in the morning, as they move from wintering areas to spring feeding locations.

Vermont’s top game warden Col. Jason Batchelder says that last year drivers hit 56 moose on the state’s highways.

He says moose can be unpredictable and dangerous if people get too close and they feel cornered or get irritated.

The department says motorists should always be aware of the danger of moose, which cross the road randomly, as well as at their regular crossings.
