Salutations: Perhaps I'm wrong, I often am.. I'm pretty sure that it would require an actual pipe triangle across the window/door to the trunk to pull it off.. What happens in these collisions is that you catch the animal below the knees and about 1,500 pounds of moose kinda smacks down in an arc at 80kph+ across the windscreen/roof - if you are lucky enough to catch it in sideways.. Otherwise it puts it's head down and you get the full hard pointy effect or something less pleasant (if morbidly amusing) from the other end.. Perhaps there is some question of scale between euro-moose and native north americans.. Here is relevant picture of the problem over here (and this is one of the pansy Alaska moose).. http://www.alaskasaurora.com/images/Bull%20moose%20Christmas%20001.jpg -- J Dexter - webmaster - http://www.dexterdyne.org/ all tunes - no cookies no subscription no weather no ads no news no phone in - all the time Radio Free Dexterdyne Top Tune o'be-do-da-day Brian Setzer Orchestra - Jump Jive Wail http://www.dexterdyne.org/888/019.RAM davehinznopsamcop.net wrote: > > Someone who looks an awful lot like Senappi <bofhnopsambloxrocketmail.com> wrote: > > > No passengercar bounces moose of them..
