The remains of the young moose the was euthanized after causing a massive traffic backlog on Highway 417 Thursday morning have been given to the Algonquins of Ontario to be processed and distributed to less fortunate families in the community.

According to Lynn Clouthier, the Algonquin Negotiation Representative for Ottawa, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry reaches out a handful of times each year when a moose, bear or deer are hit by cars or undergo some sort of accident, but the meat on the animal is still available to be harvested.
