If he blinked, he may have missed it.

Owen Murphy was driving from Fermeuse to St. John's around 2 a.m. on July 30, when a moose popped out from the side of the highway and into the path of his vehicle.

In video captured on dashcam, Murphy yells "moose" before the animal is seen within what appears to be inches from his vehicle.
