There are more cars on the road than ever before in NL. It was recently released that there are more vehicles registered than there are people! Shame on SOPAC for using a grieving couple as they did. As far as I am concerned they exploited them for their own end. They looked so emotionally fragile. I was not impressed with the Lucy Stoyles at all. She obviously has her own agenda. Disgusted.

The number of accidents would depend on the number of moose and the number of vehicles on the road.

As an avid outdoors person, moose are most definitly on the decline. I spend a lot of time on the Northern Peninsula, mainly in the St. Anthony area, and Main Brook/Roddickton area. I am very confident in saying the moose population has decreased by at least 50% in the last 10 years. The # of moose in this area now is less than what it was in 1995. It probbaly has something to do with the Gov constantly increasing #licenses, and over the last 4 years, they have been issuing 400 cow only lisense in the St. Anthony area. Not to mention the the additional 800 licenses. And anyone who has any common sense knows that Cow only licenses will not work, unless they want to eliminate the animal from the area. For example, killing 1 Cow moose is the equivalent of killing 6-7 Bull moose (With ergards to moose population impact)
