Human athletes hurdle things, but when you’re driving along and a moose tries to hurdle you, and your car, it just got real.
This driver seemed to be having an ordinary day, probably driving to or from work, or on an errand. Who knows? But it’s a trip I’m sure they won’t ever forget.
Watch this Russian dash cam footage of this cervid’s lucky leap.
Luckily the moose, the car and its occupants seem to have made it through this craziness without damage. But I bet the moose will have a few lumps to heal.
It took quite a tumble after clipping the roof of the car. But it looked like most of its weight was on its left front leg when it fell, and fortunately it appeared to have no problem putting full weight on it as it got up and ran off.
Hopefully this moose won’t make a habit of hurdling cars.
