COLORADO (Web Desk) – A Colorado woman managed to get the “upsetting” moment a moose was catapulted into the air by an oncoming SUV on a country highway.

According to details, Kayla Whitehead had pulled over to see two moose that were running along Highway 9.

Inwards the picture, the unsuspecting moose is shot into the air and catapulted to the other side of the road by a fast-moving SUV who failed to observe the cars which had forced over to observe the wild creatures.

“I think the guys were just from out of town and didn’t know that a bunch of cars pulled over means there’s wildlife on mountain roads,” wrote Whitehead in the YouTube videos description.

The moose can be seen limping away from the scene into the bushes and Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers told the Denver Post they believe the animal survived as they searched for over a mile.

Surprisingly, even the vehicle’s passengers managed to get away without injury.
