Moose Killed in Truck Crash

The DNR reports that a moose was killed in a traffic accident last night.

The accident happened on US-41 near Parent Lake on the Baraga County–Marquette County line at about 10 last night.

An elderly man driving a full–size Dodge pickup was not injured, but his truck had major damage.

The DNR says the two-to-three-year-old bull moose weighed

between 700 and 800 pounds.

The meat that could be salvaged will be donated to a Baraga County food bank.
