The scene unfolded at the Karlstad Golf Club in Karlstad, Sweden, when the young moose got a little too close for comfort.

The golfer, identified as Christer Sjogren by the Stockholm newspaper Aftonbladet, at first tried to hide from the calf behind a tree, but after a few minutes he realized that wasn’t working. 

Sjogren then took off across the links with the calf hot on his heels. 

Tony Swahn recorded the incident and posted the video to Facebook. It has since gone viral.
