NDP MP Ryan Cleary collided with a moose while driving in Newfoundland last weekend.
I had only a single thought just before striking a moose on the western edge of Terra Nova National Park Sunday evening — if it goes through the windshield, I’m dead. I didn’t see the moose until it was immediately in front of me, meters away.
It was as if my brain took a snapshot of the second before impact: I took in with absolute clarity how the moose didn’t have antlers; how the animal was almost as dark as the highway itself; and how it had a huge belly. “Moose must be eating well these days,” I thought.
