More than 40 moose-related accidents were reported in the state between 1995 and 2016. Two accidents were reported last month.
Moose primarily reside in the northern part of the state. In 2014, a moose was spotted in Cheshire.
“Moose venturing into southern Connecticut, with high population density, road networks, and traffic volumes, pose an increased potential for human fatalities from accidents as compared to deer-vehicle accidents,” DEEP said.
