I haven't seen the tests you are referring to, but I have been the first person on site after an accident between a car and a moose and that was not a pretty sight. The funny thing is that SAAB here in Sweden, to my knowledge, hasn't used that argument in any advertisement. This is strange since we have plenty of car/moose collisions here.. I've read that VTI ( ) have a moose crash test dummy ( ) but I don't know what their tests have shown.
