Officer dies after car hits moose
By Bob BRUTON, Thursday, July 21, 2005, With files from Canadian Press
An Ontario Provincial Police officer was killed and another seriously injured after their cruiser collided with a moose early Wednesday morning between Gravenhurst and Bala.
Dead is Andrew POTTS, 29, a seven-year Ontario Provincial Police veteran, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
A second officer, 39-year-old Matt HANES, suffered serious injuries and was airlifted to St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto. He was in stable condition.
The collision took place at about 2: 30 a.m. on Muskoka Rd. 169, near Walkers Point Road in Muskoka Lakes Township.
The two officers were responding to a call in foggy conditions when a moose crossed the road, said Bracebridge Ontario Provincial Police.
After striking the animal, the demolished cruiser came to rest in the south ditch.
Muskoka Road 169 remained closed for several hours.
Ontario's Ministry of Natural Resources does not track vehicle collisions with deer and moose.
But Jan McDONNELL, Ministry of Natural Resources wildlife biologist, says Muskoka's moose population has been stable for the last decade. And there's no environmental or weather reason that would change their migration or feeding habits to bring them closer to roadways this summer.
“But moose do get out on highways occasionally. It happens often enough,” she said. “Because of their long legs their bodies are at window level for most vehicles.&rdquo
“When it's dark at night they're difficult to see, and the animals get blinded by the headlights.
“They're just darn big animals,” she said.
McDONNELL said an adult bull moose can be as big as 450 kilograms, or almost 1,000 pounds. An adult cow moose can reach 350 kg. or about 770 pounds
Deer, by comparison, are much smaller. Adult bucks are usually 90 kg. or nearly 200 pounds , while a doe can go to 60 kg. or about 130 pounds
“But the deer density across Central Ontario is very high and there are a growing number of deer collisions occurring,” said McDONNELL. “There are an awful lot of deer accidents these days.
“If you hit a deer, it still does a lot of damage. But a moose is different.&rdquo
Moose and deer are often on the move in spring and fall. In spring they move from their winter to summer feeding grounds, then make the trip back in the fall.
A number of factors, however, can bring them closer to highways and roads.
Development often eats up habitat - the forests, grasslands and waterways where animals live. It simply displaces wildlife, which must travel to find new homes.
McDONNELL said artificial feeding programs for deer often bring the animals too close to highways as well.
She said motorists must also be aware of black bears on Ontario roadways. Male bears can range from 250 to 300 pounds (112.5-135 kg.), while the females are 120-200 pounds (54-90 kg.).
Ontario Provincial Police say the latest statistics on vehicle/wild animal collisions in Ontario are from 2002. That year there were eight fatalities, 534 personal injury collisions and 12,255 property damage crashes.
In total, there were 452,000 vehicles involved in collisions of all types that year said Cora HUGHES, Ontario Provincial Police traffic analyst.

But most of all, she loved family. We will all miss her enormously.

Muskoka constable killed, partner injured as cruiser hits moose
By Rob SHAW, Thursday, July 21, 2005, Page A10
The town of Bracebridge is known as the "heart of Muskoka," but for many in the small community, yesterday was simply a heartbreaking day.
A well-known local Ontario Provincial Police constable was killed, and his partner injured, when their cruiser collided with a moose at around 2: 30 a.m. while the two were en route to a domestic dispute call.
Twenty-nine-year-old Andrew POTTS, known to Friends as Andy, was pronounced dead at the scene.
His partner, 39-year-old Matt HANES, was airlifted to St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto where he was in serious but stable condition, police said yesterday afternoon.
Constable POTTS, a Harley-Davidson motorcycle enthusiast, was born and raised in the Muskoka-Bracebridge area. He was, said his colleague and friend Constable Ted SMITH, a nice guy to talk to. He was a good listener, and had a good sense of humour."
He leaves his parents, a sister and his girlfriend.
The accident shocked and saddened the 65-officer Bracebridge Muskoka police detachment and the surrounding community, said Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Gwen BONIFACE, who was on scene by 5 a.m. in an area that is at least two hours north of Toronto.
"It's a terrible collision, an odd set of circumstances, and a tremendous loss for us," Ms. BONIFACE said. "Andy POTTS was from this area, he grew up in this community, and you can feel, not just in this detachment but from the response we've had in the community today, that this is being really felt right across the Muskoka area.
"Obviously, a collision with a moose is rare, but that's what we do -- every day we're out there driving. I know there are officers who will step back today and say, 'There but for the grace of God go I.' "
Constable POTTS is the first on-duty Ontario Provincial Police officer to be killed this year, and the 90th in the organization's history. The last time an officer was killed in an accident involving a moose was in 1963 near North Bay. The last five Ontario Provincial Police deaths have been as a result of motor vehicle accidents.
Bracebridge was where Constable POTTS most wanted to be, Constable SMITH said. The seven-year Ontario Provincial Police veteran spent two years at the Pickle Lake detachment in Northwestern Ontario before returning to his hometown detachment.
"This is the type of guy, who is a solid officer, who you wanted to go to calls with because you knew he was there to back you up if you had any problems," Constable SMITH said.
His on-duty partner, Constable HANES, is a 14-year Ontario Provincial Police veteran who is married with three young children.
The exact cause of the accident is still unknown, police said, although the night was foggy and the moose was standing on Highway 169 as the officers travelled west to the domestic dispute near Bala.
Fall is usually the peak season for moose accidents, but because the animals are heat-sensitive, they are likely travelling during the cool nighttime hours to cope with the recent heat wave, Howard SMITH, senior biologist at the Ministry of Natural Resources, said.
Moose can be naturally attracted to highways because they represent the edge of a forest, and they often choose not to move as a vehicle approaches, he said.
An investigation into the crash is under way. Constable SMITH would not say if the cruiser was travelling quickly, or if it had its emergency lights on.
"A moose is probably one of the most dangerous of all animals to run into," said Bruce LEESON, senior environmental assessment scientist with Parks Canada.
"It has such tall legs, you don't actually hit the body, you hit the legs and it comes across the hood and then takes off the roof of the car," Dr. LEESON said.
It is the equivalent of running head-on into the back of a tractor-trailer, said Ontario Provincial Police Sergeant Jerry BLACE, who has seen the results of such accidents.
You have a 1-in-200 chance of being killed if you hit a moose with your car, compared to a 1-in-3,500 chance if you hit a deer, according to data from the U.S. National Co-Operative Highway Research Program.
Canadian member of Parliament Steven FLETCHER hit a moose and survived north of Winnipeg in 1996, but he now uses a wheelchair due to injuries he suffered in the collision. He became the first quadriplegic elected to Parliament in the last federal election.
The most recent Transport Canada report, from March of 2003, said that four to eight collisions of large animals and vehicles happen every hour in Canada.
Ontario has an estimated 115,000 moose, most of them in the northern part of the province.

KRITZWISER, Kay -- I Remember
By Lyman POTTS, Saturday, December 10, 2005 Page, S9
Burlington, Ontario, -- Former broadcaster Lyman POTTS of Burlington, Ontario, writes about Kay KRITZWISER, whose obituary appeared yesterday.
Six years younger than Kay, I was one of the avid readers of the Torchbearers Magazine. So was my wife-to-be, Micky BOLE, who contributed poetry and was encouraged by Kay and became a "torchbearer." (There were "torchbearers" from as far away as Australia.) In my teens, while haunting the halls, press room, editorial room and radio station in the Regina Leader-Post building, I got to know Kay and her husband, Harold. When I was moved to the Toronto head office of Standard Broadcasting in 1963, after launching the Canadian Talent Library the previous year, Kay gave me a nice review in The Globe and Mail.
Kay was a long-time friend of Nancy (GRAHAM) CALDWELL -- another Regina girl -- who married Spence CALDWELL, founder of the CTV television network. When he sold CTV to the participating stations, Spence and Nancy retired to a farm near Bolton, Ontario One night, Kay was coming to join the CALDWELLs for dinner. Spence picked her up at a bus stop near the farm. On their way to the farm, a tractor-trailer pulled out from a coffee shop and Spence crashed into it. Spence was killed, but Kay survived. Kay and Nancy remained close and often travelled together.
I lost track of Kay when Nancy went to live with a relative in Edmonton and died there. My wife and I often wondered what had become of Kay, and we are saddened to hear of her passing.
A memorial service for Kay KRITZWISER will be held at 2 p.m. on December 19 at The Arts and Letters Club, 14 Elm Street, Toronto.

Officer killed as cruiser hits moose
Partner flown to hospital from Muskoka
Dense fog at 2 a.m. cloaked highway in cottage country
By Scott ROBERTS, Staff Reporter
Bracebridge -- When the dispatch call was made to Bracebridge ambulance workers, Jason MOORE's heart sank.
The caller on the line described a horrific road collision in the heart of cottage country where an Ontario Provincial Police officer had been killed early yesterday.
"I had this feeling. I just knew it was him," said MOORE, an ambulance dispatcher.
"I just had this fear that it was him."
MOORE's fear became a reality just minutes later when he found out from emergency workers at the scene what he already suspected that the 29-year-old constable killed was his best friend, Andrew POTTS.
"It was tough to hear," he said. "The whole time I was hoping it wasn't him. But I knew it was."
POTTS, a seven-year veteran of the Ontario Provincial Police, was pronounced dead at the scene after the police cruiser he was driving collided with a moose on Muskoka Rd. 169, near Walker's Point Rd., about halfway between Gravenhurst and Bala.
His partner, Const. Matt HANES, 39, suffered head injuries and was airlifted to St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto. He was listed in serious condition, but is expected to survive.
The two officers were responding to a domestic dispute when they struck the large animal at about 2 a.m. Dense fog clouded the road and could have caused the accident, which also killed the moose, police said.
Ontario Provincial Police officials would not confirm if the emergency lights of the cruiser were on, or if speed may have contributed to the incident.
After a night without sleep, MOORE travelled to the scene of the collision in search of closure. By afternoon, there were few signs that the accident had taken place. An Ontario Provincial Police crest had been tagged to a telephone pole nearby.
Friends and family described POTTS as a reserved but funny man who loved to ride the Harley-Davidson motorcycle he recently purchased.
A terrible golfer, a great friend -- that is how MOORE will remember POTTS. The two had been close since high school. They were roommates for two years and POTTS was in MOORE's wedding party. MOORE said his best memories of POTTS came from road trips to Ohio and Florida.
"He was really a special guy. He'd be the first one to come over and help you when you needed it. He touched a lot of people here."
From nearby Port Carling, Bob POTTS could only whisper as he tried to describe the son he lost, while his wife Shirley sat close by.
"He was my best friend," said POTTS as his voice waned.
"He was just a great young man, just a responsible, gentle young man. He was just so happy."
Andrew POTTS -- known as Pottsy to close Friends -- had a girlfriend, Erin, and less than a month ago he became an uncle when his sister, Amy SCHELL, gave birth to a baby girl.
Although POTTS was tough on the outside, Friends believed he had a soft spot.
"I think he was excited about the new baby," said MOORE. "He may just not have wanted anybody to know."
POTTS is the first Ontario Provincial Police officer killed this year and the first ever killed on duty from the Bracebridge detachment.
He joined the force in 1998 and was initially posted to the Pickle Lake detachment in northwestern Ontario. He returned to serve his hometown of Bracebridge in 2000.
Fellow officers at the Bracebridge detachment mourned the loss of a man they called a cornerstone of the community.
"Andy was the type of guy you could always count on being there when you needed him," said Const. Ted SMITH. "He was a pleasure to work with and pleasant to talk to. He was just the type of guy you liked to work with."
Premier Dalton McGuinty expressed his condolences."Our thoughts go out to provincial constable POTTS' family and Friends," said McGuinty from Queen's Park.
The funeral service will take place on Friday at 1 p.m. at the Glenwood Chapel, 4060 Muskoka Rd. in Port Carling.
Four people died in Ontario in motor vehicle collisions with wild animals in 2003, compared to eight in 2002. Also in Ontario that year, there were 13,222 motor vehicle collisions with wildlife that caused property damage; that includes 503 motor vehicle collisions that resulted in human injuries.
