Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Authorities think a moose spotted earlier this week in West Fargo is the same animal involved in an early morning accident.

A driver was heading west on I-94 around six when his pickup hit the moose near Casselton.

Drew Eman tells us his truck was pulling a skid steer when he hit the moose head on, shocking him and waking up his friend in the passenger seat.

Authorities say the moose had to be euthanized.

Based on pictures, they say it looks to be the same animal police encountered in West Fargo Monday night.

Eman: “It's a moose and then I pulled over on the side of the road and I told my buddy, ‘I’m pretty sure I just hit a moose.’ He said, ‘No you didn't hit a moose dude; I’m sure you just hit a deer.’”

Both the driver and passenger are okay.
