    Here's a simple way to reduce many of the collisions, at least on the West Coast of Newfoundland, between drivers and moose. Reduce some unnecessary highway driving by using the Stephenville Airport, which is located on the edge of the ocean, with no trees, nor moose running, along one of the biggest runways in Eastern Canada ( can land the space shuttle) -instead of forcing travelers- to use, the Deer Lake airport, which is located in the middle of the forest. Travelers with major airlines, must use the airport in Deer Lake, in the woods, which then forces travelers to drive along a moose filled highway surrounded by dense trees and brush, for hours to reach their destination; which on a dark, foggy night, is a nightmare to drive. I have heard, many travelers from around the world comment on how forcing passengers to use only the Deer Lake and not, Stephenville Airport by major airlines, needs a change; no one wants to travel, and fly to their destination, only to be forced to drive along a dangerous highway, moose filled highway, especially on a dark, foggy, night.
