Hello, 911? There’s a body on the roof.

A maintenance crew discovered what looked like a mutilated body with a severed head on top of an Anchorage office building. But any urgency responding police officers had Wednesday calmed once they discovered the remains were the partial carcass of an ungulate, likely a moose.

via The Associated Press: ‘Body’ on top of building likely a moose carcass.

Getting the moose up there is not as spectacular a feat as it at first sounds. It was a one story building.

Lake Placid News

A moose was killed after being struck by three vehicles on state Route 3 in Vermontville Friday.

Lowville resident Cynthia Ramsay, 48, was driving eastbound on Sugarbush Hill at about 9 p.m. when she struck the animal with her Nissan Sentra, state police in Ray Brook said.

The two-year-old moose, estimated to be 500 to 600 pounds, fell onto the hood and eventually landed in the westbound lane, where it was struck again.

This time it was hit by a Chevrolet van from Sunmount in Tupper Lake driven by 38-year-old Morris Wells.

Motorcyclist Mark Trudeau, 23, of Saranac Lake, was the third driver to hit the moose.
