About the Weekly Carnage

  • ddartley

    How’s this for backwards thinking?

    “Moose pose a serious danger to motorists because they can weigh up to 1,000 pounds, officials said.”

  • Steve

    At least the article attempted a “balanced” presentation of th issue by exploring the “upside” of moosekill on the parkway: “The DEP released a statement yesterday evening saying it plans to donate the moose meat to Hunters for the Hungry, a group that provides fresh animal meat to the needy”
