You think your morning commute is bad.
Check out this moose on Newfoundland’s Salmonier Line early Monday morning.
Donna Francis was at home, but getting ready for work before 6 a.m. when she saw a moose swimming across St. Mary’s Bay. Yes, the entire body of water, before emerging on dry land only to play chicken in traffic on a busy road.
“Thought I was seeing things when I saw it swimming across the bay!” Francis posted on Facebook, where the amazing video has now been viewed tens of thousands of times. “Close call with the car…and I was too far away to warn them. I’ve seen so many near misses in front of my house!”
What an incredible journey.
First a dip.
Then a dodge.
Put this moose on The Amazing Race.
This is one lucky moose.
“There’s a rosebush on the edge of the road that could have blocked his view of the moose,” Francis added. “But people need to slow down along that stretch. I know it’s just a matter of time until there’s a bad moose accident. I’ve witnessed 4 really close calls in the last couple of years.”
