– Behind the fence where the moose jumped, there was a drive to a garage. It is about three meters down. Halvorson says the moose fell on its head and broke its neck, so it died instantly.
The head of the Fallviltgruppa says that the moose in question was 1.5 years old and had a live weight of 200 to 250 kg.
