CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – As the days get shorter, it’s becoming more difficult to see animals in the road. Bill Gogol of BG Sporting in Westfield says the danger of colliding with a bigger animal increases during the months of October and November.

Gogol said hitting a deer will damage your car, but a driver runs very serious risks if they hit a moose. Mosses can be very aggressive.

“You drive into a moose, it’s a death sentence. What they do is they lift your car with their feet kicking. They’re so tall and they come right through the windows and kick you to death,” said Gogol.

He said animals dart into the road so quickly, drivers have to concentrate. Gogol recommends you pay special attention to the sides of the road, and be able to see fifty feet in front of you at all times.
