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 ( http://www.vti.se ) have a moose crash test dummy ( http://www.vti.se/info/rapporter/detalj.asp?RecID=1776&Lang=S ) but I don't know what their tests have shown.
