Sweden Exports Moose
Sweden is exporting moose to Scotland.
On Saturday two tame Swedish moose, or European elk, will be flown to Inverness. Named Hulda and Hercules, they are six months old, and will be initially located in a park, where children can see them. Hopefully they will start to replenish the species in Britain.
According to the moose expert responsible for the project, there haven’t been any moose in Britain since the creation of the English Channel, more than 180,000 years ago.
