Driver Hits Moose On Best Avenue

A driver was shaken and a bull moose put down after a collision between the two on Best Avenue Tuesday morning. Ray Theander was driving westbound on Best Avenue when he struck a 1-year-old moose near Eighth Street shortly before 11 a.m. "He came out of nowhere," an emotional Theander said after the accident, which crumpled the hood and front windshield of his 1997 Hyundai. "I never expected to see a moose on the corner of Eighth Street and Best Avenue." Theander said he was traveling 25 miles per hour after he left his work at Motion Auto Supply about one block away, and didn't see the animal until it covered his windshield/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: Would you be surprised to see a moose at 8th & Best?
