'...THE MOOSE HAS BEEN DIVIDED FAIRLY AMONG ALL THE RESPONDERS'
The Trooper, after inspecting the car – there was fur embedded in the broken glass – concluded that Clement had hit a bear. The LVPA, after inspecting Clement, concluded he was not going to be making pancakes for the yoga retreaters. They packed him up and brought him to Albany Medical Center. While Clement’s head was being examined, Troopers made a more thorough search of the accident scene. Who knows? It was near enough to the race track that it was worth checking to see if maybe a race fan had stopped a Jetta in its tracks. Some race fans are pretty hefty, some rather furry. Better to be safe. A few yards past the highway’s shoulder a sad discovery was made. A moose, and not a dead moose, but a moose with severe injuries. The Trooper decided the moseying days of the moose were over and kindly dispatched the animal.
