I've read that hitting a moose is a real killer. Apparently they are so tall that the mass of their bodies are above the top of the hood, so that when you hit them, you cut their legs out from under them and your windshield collides with their bodies at 55 MPH. Whoever fails to duck, dies. It's akin to driving under the back end of a semi. Regarding Ken's hitting a deer in a VW Bug...I had a friend hit a bear in one. My friend and the bear survived. The car got squashed like...well...like a Bug.
