    The RNC would like to remind drivers to be cognizant in this area?? Glib comment bordering on insulting and offensive, so thanks for that. Cognizant? We are. Very. Extremely. Not one person leaves my house in CBS without me warning them to "watch out for the moose" on the Manuels Access and CBS Bypass. There's only so much a driver can do when the province's highways are maggoty with moose. They're thick as flies. They are destroying large sectors of natural flora in the province with their grazing, which in turn destroys habitat for birds and other natural fauna, and they're a threat to public safety on the highways. Screw the hunt- there should be a year-round bounty. Bull, cow, calf, whatever- kill 'em all. They are every bit as much a nuisance and threat as the kangaroo in Australia.
