A moose was filmed cantering down the road in central Russia, followed by a brown bear that was scared off by a honking car.

The video uploaded on social media Monday evening shows the moose running from the bear down an empty road in Khanty-Mansiisk autonomous district.

Further in the distance, the brown bear can be seen stopping in its tracks and escaping from the honking car into the woods.

Readers broke into two camps: those who blamed the video’s authors for leaving the bear hungry and those who applauded them for saving the moose.

Brown bears emerge from months of hibernation in mid-spring.

… we have a small favor to ask.
