Moose Seen Meandering Across Mass. Pike

BLANDFORD, Mass. (WGGB) — A number of things can cause traffic to slow down on the Pike. Toll plazas, accidents, weather conditions, just to name a few.

Moose though?

Friday morning around 10:00, these two moose were seen crossing the Mass. Turnpike in Blandford.

Motorists slowed for the four-legged commuters, who eventually wandered away.

The Mass. Department of Fish and Wildlife estimates, based on data from 2007, that about 850 to 900 moose live in Massachusetts.
