After a moose was spotted in Farmington near Interstate 84, the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection is warning drivers to be cautious.
The moose was seen on Town Farm Road about 2.5 miles away from the state highway.
DEEP officials said moose can severely damage vehicles if they are hit by a car.
Moose are also hard to see at night because of their dark color, DEEP officials said.
According to DEEP officials, there are between 100 to 150 moose in Connecticut, most located in the northeastern and northwestern wooded corners of the state.
Anyone who sees a moose is asked to report it by calling 860-424-3333 or by clicking on the DEEP website.
