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 kilometres north of Oslo, around midnight on Wednesday, and tried to go around the animal, not realizing that a bear was also nearby.
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.
