    OSLO (Reuters) - A Norwegian driver who swerved his car on a rural road to avoid running into a moose hit a bear instead, authorities said on Thursday.
    The driver spotted the moose on a country road near Hanestad, 225 kilometers north of Oslo, around midnight on Wednesday, and tried to go around the animal, not realizing that a bear was also nearby.

    "The driver had lost a bit of speed as he tried to avoid the moose before hitting the bear," said Svein Erik Bjorke of the local wildlife authority, who was out in the forest searching for the wounded animal.

    "We are currently tracking the bear and we have found traces of blood indicating internal injuries," he said.

    The driver escaped uninjured while his car suffered some damage.
    Norway's rugged mountains are sparsely populated and full of wildlife. The country, nearly the size of Germany but home to just five million people, has around 100,000 moose and 150 brown bears, authorities said.

    Typical Morey move. He struck out on the most endangered species asset that had more value over the 6'9 pf moose.

    This is exactly why we have the right to bear arms in the US America.

    He's lucky. If he had hit that moose, he'd probably be dead. I've seen what a horse collision can do to a little Euro car and I shudder to think of what a moose would do.

    Bear in mind the moose is just another asset to bait the bear.

    He was much kinder to that Moose than Clark W. Griswold was.
