APPLETON, Newfoundland, July 5 (UPI) -- A Newfoundland motorcyclist's helmet camera recorded his close call with a moose that ran out ahead of him on the Trans-Canada Highway.
Adam Cahill posted a video to Facebook showing him dodging the moose while traveling on the Trans-Canada Highway near Appleton and the clip quickly went viral.
"I suppose by now everyone in Newfoundland has watched it twice," Cahill told CBC News.
The biker said he feels "definitely pretty lucky. I've been a big advocate for the motorcycle safety course these days, that's for sure."
"Everybody's been coming up to me saying how lucky I am and stuff like that. And how funny they thought the video was and all that stuff. So it's pretty good," he said.
Cahill said he's heard from some of the other drivers and bikers seen in his video.
"I was actually talking to [the pickup truck driver] actually, he reached out to me after on Facebook and he was like, 'Oh yeah, I tried my best to move out of your way,'" Cahill said. "Even a couple of the other motorcyclists that were in the video that were coming the other way, they even had wrote me and said, 'We got past no problem.'"
Cahill said the near miss has not made him more reluctant to go out on his bike.
"Absolutely not. It is what it is, if it happens it happens. This is how it goes," he said.
