A group fighting for more measures to be taken to reduce the number of moose-vehicle accidents in the province has set up its own toll-free number for people to report moose sightings or moose-vehicle accidents.
The Save Our People Action Committee (SOPAC) says it took the initiative because the provincial government is not doing enough to deal with the moose accident problem.
SOPAC spokesperson Lucy Stoyles said today government should be ashamed for not better dealing with the issue.
"A young man, 29 years old, is still in hospital now because of his severe injuries caused b'y hitting a moose," she said.
"The number of moose accidents has grown to a frightening level."
Stoyles said SOPAC will collect, record and compile the information received from calls to the number in the hope more action will be taken.
The number is 1-855-896-6673 or 1-855-89 MOOSE.
Members of the Save Our People Action Committee (SOPAC) are once again protesting at this hour at Confederation Building.
The group has been calling on the provincial government to take action to reduce the number of fatalities and serious injuries as a result of moose-vehicle collisions on the province's highways.
More information from today's event will be posted as it becomes available.
