Tony Swahn posted a three-minute-long video to Facebook showing his friend Christer Sjogren trying to keep his distance from the moose calf last week. First, Mr Sjorgen hid behind a tree, hoping the curious young moose would simply sniff around his abandoned golf clubs and move away. Moments later, however, the moose started chasing after Mr Sjorgen as he ran around a tree a few times.
Suddenly, the golfer began running towards his friends, including Mr Swahn, who was still laughing as he filmed the encounter from a slight distance.
As the moose closed in on Mr Sjorgen, Mr Swahn and his fellow golfers started making loud noises in an attempt to scare the animal off.
Startled by the noises, the moose finally stopped chasing Mr Sjorgen and turned away. It briefly waited around before wandering off into the woods near the Karlstad Golf Club.
Watch the video below:
According to Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, Mr Sjorgen was more worried about his golf clubs than anything else. He admitted the decision to make a run for it was "wrong" but said he was only briefly scared. Luckily, he survived the encounter unscathed.
