We’ve all had that feeling — when you misread the map and realise you’re in the wrong place.

It’s even worse if you need to be somewhere else (say, for a meeting) and have to hightail it out of there as fast as you can.

As it happens, there’s a moose in Sweden who appears to know these kind of emotions all too well.

After finding itself on a popular ski slope in the Swedish province of Jämtland, the local ungulate (hoofed mammal) got a flutter in the pit of its stomach that something was amiss.

We’re not sure what the moose’s meeting schedule was like, but as this video shows it wasted no time leaving the scene:

That was close.

To local stocks now, and the ASX200 held close to break-even but was down 0.07 per cent to 7,158 points in midday trade. It was slightly more volatile on the Small Ords index, which fell by 0.30 per cent to 3,077 points.
