An RCMP police cruiser collided with a moose overnight on the Trans Canada Highway, approximately 1.5 kilometres east of Butterpot Park.

There were no injuries reported by the police officer who was driving the vehicle, though the vehicle received extensive damage.

Wildlife officials were called to the scene to remove the animal from the roadway.

The Holyrood RCMP is advising the motoring public to continue to exercise caution while travelling the province’s roadways, especially at night.

    All jokes aside the government won't do anything about moose over population until half a dozen moose walk onto the Confederation Building parking lot, anyone mocking the situation is obviously living and working in St.John's and doesn't travel the highways to work each day. Easy to sit back and crack a joke or two then.

    When do they plan on fixing the moose warning lights on the highway just before the Holyrood turn off? They have not worked since November.
