It's hard not to feel sorry for the bear in the video below. The poor critter gets nailed pretty hard while ambling across a Russian highway. Despite an impact at what looks to be at least 40 miles per hour, the big bear does his best impression of a breakdancer before shrugging off the hit and scampering for the hills. There's no telling what sort of internal damage the animal suffered due to the collision, but we imagine the offending car didn't get away so easily. With parts bouncing off of the highway in every which direction, it looks and sounds like there was plenty of damage.

You can watch the cringe-inducing clip below for yourself thanks to the ever-present Russian dash cam. We've found cranking some techno in the background helps add some levity to the impact.
