A tragic accident

October 6, 2013

Bob Timm, Minot It was really sad to see the spectacle, or should I say circus, made of the tragic killing of that once magnificent moose on Thursday morning in north Minot....

And now, the innocent driver has sent in a letter of her own with her side of the story. Timm has egg on his face.

Keep your head up lms659. I totally disagree with Mr. Timm who had zero facts and decided to assume the worst. The even more tragic thing to me is that he decided to post his assumptions and accuse an innocent person without having any facts. I am a huge animal lover too and can imagine how hard this was and is for you. I too thought when I first heard this that someone may have been speeding or texting. The difference is, that I did not post my factless opinions and accuse an innocent person based on an assumption. YOU know the facts and sleep easy knowing there was nothing you could do to avoid this tragedy.

The woman who was driving the wrong way in the dark has been charged with negligent homicide. But that has little to do with this accident.

lms, remember that there was nothing you could have done differently. The moose didn't have knowledge of city rules anymore than you have knowledge of his where abouts. Accidents can happen to the most responsible of folks. That is why they are called accidents. Ignore Bob and the other short-sighted people. Take care. I hope your vehicle can be replaced. The meat from the moose will be given to feed the hungry once processed via Community Action.

I was the driver of this vehicle and you Bob have no idea what I was or wasn't doing. I was not speeding,texting,etc, I was coming to a stop. That beautiful animal came from my right and I only had time to see a split second of his face. I assumptions made are disgusting. I am still upset and still cry over this and can't get his face out of my mind or having to see it in the street still alive. what is wrong with you? I love animals and you make it sound as if that was my goal for the day. It amazes me at the ignorance of people to automatically think I was at fault. There were no tickets given because I didn't do anything wrong. To all who have said such ugly things you should get you facts straight. To those who have been objective thank you for having some common sense. My heart is still broken over this.

it's too bad bob wasn't there to coax the moose out of town. it's nice to know that moose don't 'bolt' tho. i'll remember that if i'm driving in the country and i see a moose in the ditch.

Did you witness the accident? Have you talked with the driver and the police to get an actual account of what happened? The moose was donated to community Action for processing and will be used to feed the hungry. Accidents happen. Are you this upset about all the road kill outside of city limits?
