DEEP advises drivers to be cautious following recent moose sightings
Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection officials are urging drivers to exercise caution following recent moose sightings.
Officials say moose were sighted in Woodbury, Southbury, Danbury, Newtown, and New Fairfield.
They say although all the sightings are believed to be the same moose, the incidents serve as an important reminder for motorists to be aware that increased moose activity near roadways can pose a hazard.
DEEP officials say though Connecticut’s moose population is small, with only about 100, moose can pose a serious threat to public safety when they wander onto roadways. Moose are more active and often travel farther distances during the fall breeding season, which peaks in September through October.
