I always had a scanner on so I could listen to
what was going on the railroad. I could hear the engineer and the
conductor talking back and forth. I heard them say a moose was hit
by the south bound train. A rail crew was behind them and hoisted
the moose by its neck with a crane. They went into a hole (a hole
is what they call a siding). So there was a moose hanging by
its neck from a crane. I ran into the dining room and yelled, "Moose
on the right!" So the passengers looked to the right to see a poor
moose hanging by its neck from a crane. Most of them laughed.
A couple gave me a dirty look and said,"eww".
