Hit By A Moose

A couple of weeks ago we (husband, children and I) were driving home at 9:30 at night after a long day at our business, we had just passed the turn off to the ski hill and were coming out of a turn when this huge moose bolted out of the woods and ran right into our truck. I screamed and my husband hit the brakes. We figured it was being chased by a cougar the way it just bolted out of the woods. It was very terrifying. My daughter Breana was screaming and crying, my son Ethan had just started to doze off and sat up trying to figure out what was going on and my 2 year old Alyssa woke up out of a dead sleep screaming. The moose turned her head quickly, if she had not it would have gone through the windshield. We were very lucky that we were in a truck and it was a cow so did not have antlers or we could have been seriously hurt. We are all fine. We are waiting for parts to come in so our truck can be fixed. I could not even open my door. I thank God everyday for keeping us safe.
