WHITEFISH, Mont., Jan. 3 (UPI) -- A Montana woman traveling through the mountains on the Idaho border captured video of a bull moose running alongside her family's car for several seconds.

Jessica Richards, 27, of Whitefish, said she is always on the lookout for moose while traveling down Highway 12 to visit family in Boise, Idaho, but she had never actually seen one until Dec. 23.

"And every time, I always see these moose-crossing signs everywhere, and I always tell my husband I want to see a moose but we never do," Richards told ABC News.

Richards captured video during the Dec. 23 drive of a large bull moose running next to the car as if it was racing -- and winning.

"Not only did we see a moose, we were one with the moose," Richards wrote on Facebook. "Well MERRY FREAKING CHRISTMAS TO ME!"

Richards said the moose ran alongside the family car for about 40 seconds.

"They're my favorite animal and obviously super powerful and amazing," she told Global News.
