Bruce the Moose, the plywood moose cutout in Wilson that was embellished as part of the Knitting Project, has been returned to his normal bare state. The knitted embellishments have been removed so Bruce can best perform his intended purpose of drawing to the attention of passing motorists that there are wildlife in the area, frequently either on the road or about to be on the road.
We had hoped motorists could behave themselves for at least the Winter. The recent local moose fatality on the Village Road has proven us wrong. While everyone needs a little whimsy once in a while, highway wildlife carnage is a serious issue that must take precedence over whimsy
Please enjoy the other knitted embellishments around the valley, but also please slow down and drive attentively. Our wildlife depend on you caring enough to take a minute or two longer to get somewhere.
