Moose Hunters

Claim:   Photograph shows car truck that caused multiple accidents after the driver and passenger donned moose heads.

REAL PHOTOGRAPH; INACCURATE DESCRIPTION

Example:   [Collected via e-mail, November 2011]

This actually happened with some guys from Maine.

They dressed the truck up with the guy dummy spread eagle on the roof of the truck.

The driver and passenger put on Moose Heads.

Down the Maine Toll interstate they went, causing about 16 accidents.

They went to jail. Yamn Dankees have no sense of humor.

Origins:   The photograph displayed above features an amusing juxtaposition of the usual hunter/prey relationship (the two beer-swilling moose are an especially nice touch), but that's all it is. Driving with one's vision impeded by a head covering and causing multiple traffic accidents falls far outside the realm of a joke, and no news account documents any such occurrence of multiple "moose head shock" vehicle collisions having taken place on a Maine interstate (or anywhere else).
