The state's moose population, whose typical range is in northwestern and northeastern Minnesota, is the largest it has been in more than a decade, after 11 consecutive years of remaining relatively stable, Department of Natural Resources (DNR) officials reported this spring.

An Iron Range family out for a late-night drive collided with a moose Saturday night and sent the animal through the car's windshield, authorities said.

The Ford Mustang struck the animal about 11:50 p.m. Saturday on northbound Hwy. 53, about 25 miles south of Eveleth, the State Patrol said Sunday.

The driver, Arthur J. Peterson, 40, of Eveleth, and sons Andrew, 7, and Michael, 8, were not hurt, the patrol said.
