Raw Power Unleashed: Bear Demonstrates Incredible Strength by Easily Dragging a Large Moose Off the Road

It must be a good day for a bear when they land a moose. In all fairness, this big brown bear didn’t hunt the moose down – the moose was injured by being hit by a passing vehicle. But a bear is not above eating a little roadkill, especially if it’s fresh.

In the interest of full disclosure, this video was filmed in Arvidsjaur, Norrbotten, Sweden, but we bet you wouldn’t have been able to tell without our telling you. As far as videos of bears eating prey goes, it reminds us of the time the one in which a proud mama grizzly guards her young while they consume a deer alive. Phew, now that one was harrowing, too.

One of the most terrifying aspects of a bear encounter is that the bear (grizzly especially), unlike many other large predatory mammals, likes to eat its prey alive. So this poor moose was forced to endure the bear’s first few bites while conscious.

It’s one of the major reasons why, when we have had a few beers around the editorial office and get to discussing which animals we’d prefer to be eaten by and which we’d prefer not to be eaten by, yours truly will always choose not to be eaten by a grizzly. A lion has the basic mammalian decency to choke you to death, while even the cold-blooded (literally) crocodile will drown you before chowing down. But a grizzly has no problem at all with listening to its prey gurgle and bellow as he eats.

It might even spice the meat for a grizzly, who knows? You’d have to ask one.

“Bears are cute,” they said.

“If you don’t bother them they won’t bother you,” they said.

I haven’t had an actual encounter with a bear in my life, and after this video, I won’t be coming within a mile radius of one if I can help it.

Warning: This one is pretty graphic…

Here we have big ol’ moose laying injured on the side of a road in Sweden. A driver comes to a stop to video the ginormous creature, when a bear comes creeping out of the woods.

And you know right away, the bear isn’t looking to play…

Nope… not at all…

The driver describes the scene:

“My wife and I went by car on Wednesday night. In front of us, we saw something dark beside the road. When we approached, we saw that it was a moose lying down with the bear next to it.

The bear was a little disturbed by our presence and walked from the moose and over to the other side of the road.

Then we backed the car up to give the bear the opportunity to come back to the moose and finish what he started.”
