The bear scouts the area after the moose calf has fled.

 Up in Gävleborg working, I have seen a brown bear (Ursus arctos) hunt a moose calf (Alces alces), dragging it into a spruce thicket.

The calf was screaming and its mother ran away at first, but then the calf managed to slip away from the bear’s grasp and walked away from the scene with its mother by its side.

The bear was seemingly frustrated about losing its catch and dashed around scouting the area for about two minutes before going back in to resume its daily rest.
