Moscow's Crazy Roads: Agile Moose Narrowly Threads Its Way Through Cars

Editor's note: This video is part of a series. The Moscow Times will publish a selection of unusual incidents on roads in Moscow and the Moscow region in the coming weeks. Watch this space for more video clips.

A moose barely avoided slamming into traffic while crossing a road that passes through a park in northeast Moscow earlier this week.

Footage of the incident shot on a dashboard camera of a passing car shows the moose appear suddenly out of the woods in Sokolniki park on Monday morning, running full speed onto the road.

As it approaches and almost runs into a passing car, it pulls up quickly, then sprints past as the car moves ahead of it.

The car with the camera shooting the scene has to brake for a moment to let it go past, into the forest on the other side of the road.

Moscow's Crazy Roads:

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
