To paraphrase Sam Elliott, sometimes you see the bear, and sometimes the bear is hiding behind a moose.
The accident took place last night near the tiny rural village of Hanestad.
While Norway is riddled with moose — at least 100,000 but some estimates — only around 150 brown bears call the country home
"We are currently tracking the bear and we have found traces of blood indicating internal injuries," said Bjorke.
Neither the man nor the moose were injured, but no word yet on the status of the man's sister.
