The moose of Canada are stalking and haunting Connie Evirett and Yvonne Studley, two car-driving sisters from British Columbia. Last month Studley, 49, had a car accident involving one of the beasts; the melee left her in a coma, and the moose in a moose coffin. Then, while on the way to the hospital to visit her younger sister, 51-year-old Evirett had a moose/car accident of her own.

Everitt told a reporter: "My first thought was, 'Are the moose going out [on a] hunting season for my family?'" Seems the answer to that question is pretty clear.

Update: Looks like the women's accidents happened in 2010, but some media outlets are reporting on them as though they have just happened. It's possible that Studley and Evirett were involved in a second round of moose-related car accidents that occurred one month apart. Or that they're trapped in a Groundhog Day-like time loop.
