According to the wire report, the driver spotted the moose on a country road near Hanestad, 225 kilometers north of Oslo, went around the animal, not realizing that a bear was following the moose.

Where the hell did he drive? A zoo? A petting farm? o__O There's just too much wildlife in the area where that guy lives.
I hope he got a nice thank you note from the moose. The bear may have had nefarious intentions.
Black bears, and black Angus cows are hard to see out in the country. I've almost hit both animals, no not at the same time.
Bear can be pretty big, you don't want to hit it. A friend bagged a California bear last season, got 180 pounds of meat alone. Norwegian bear may be bigger.
