Is this sort of thing seriously normal for you all?

Depends where you live. I'm from a city so no. Where my parents are from there are deer and coyotes and other wildlife, so that would be normal. Moose are more northern or eastern canada.

I wouldn't say that it is normal but it does happen. There's moose all over the place where I live/work. Best to stay far away from them, especially right now because it's mating season. If you hit a full grown moose with your car you are definitely going to die and the moose will just get right back up and laugh at your pathetic vehicle.

Like most wildlife they tend to avoid populated areas unless they have no choice. I have no moose pictures to share because I only ever see them while driving along the Trans-Canada highway.

He isn't joking either. A moose will literally just stand in the middle of the road and lock eyes with you, while mouthing the words "
bring it bitch"
as you slam into it....

From wikipedia:

"
A moose's body structure, with a large heavy body suspended on long spindly legs, makes these animals particularly dangerous when hit by passenger cars with low ground clearances. Generally, when colliding with a moose at high speed, the car's bumper and front grille will break the moose's legs, causing the body of the moose to fall onto the car's hood and delivering the bulk of the animal's weight into the windshield, crushing the front roof support beams and anyone in the front seats.[112] Collisions of this type are frequently lethal;
seatbelts offer no protection, and airbags may not deploy or be of much use if they do.[113] Although vehicles with higher clearances (such as trucks) are typically immune from this effect, the force of striking any 270+ kg (600+ pound) object at high speed should not be underestimated. These risks led to the development of a vehicle test referred to as the "
moose test"
(Swedish: Älgtest, German: Elchtest)."

Yeah I've told Glacie that I want to see a moose;
he said we'll go and find one someday in Sudbury or something when we go north.
