An eastern Newfoundland couple who lost their son in a moose-vehicle accident hope that speaking publicly about it will pressure the provincial government to do more to prevent such tragedy. Their son, Jonathan Neil, hit a moose last September in the Tilton Barrens, between Conception and Trinity Bays. He was 22 years old. His father says his son’s death was quick. “A moose came out of the side of the road. It went up and over his car and hit him in the temple. It crushed his skull from the hoof. When the moose got in the car, it kicked, got him right in the side of the head. So, he died instantly.” Parents John and Nancy Neil spoke Thursday at a news conference in St. John’s. It was organized by the Save Our People Action Committee, who want the government to install fences and overpasses to keep moose off highways.
