Moose Crosses the Road in Russia, Without Looking

While in continental Europe we have problems with deer, foxes, rabbits and sometimes wild boars, nothing the size of a moose ever crosses the road. In Russia, though, there seem to be a lot of them, and with some roads going through their natural habitat and the routes they like to take to move around in search of food, moose are often forced to cross busy roads, putting themselves, as well as the drivers on the road at great risk.
Weighing as much as much as 700 kg, a bull moose would cause substantial damage if hit by a speeding car, more or less equal to hitting a Japanese kei car, at great speed. This time, though, the driver was warned by a truck driver who flashed his lights, after having seen the animal attempt to cross the road, first.

The driver of the car with the dash-mounted camera brakes enough to allow the moose to pass by unharmed, but if the speeds would have been greater, this could have turned ugly.
