I saw a white pickup with 2 dead moose and a dead ram in it on Wednesday, around midday on the Taconic by Route 6. For real, not making this up.


Wow..Never heard that there were Moose living in Southern NY before...Was this animal "Wild" or part of an animal attraction/exhibit farm for viewing maybe? I have heard and read in the "NYS Conservationist" bi-monthly magazine about very large Black Bears...700 plus pounds making their territory in lower NY counties...Wolves & Mountain Lions coming soon people..
