Hunters Ignore Plea to Spare Moose

Published måndag 9 oktober 2006 kl 11.07

The annual moose hunt has started in southern Sweden, and many hunters are ignoring a plea from their association to give it a miss this year.

The Swedish Association for Hunting and Wildlife Management has called on its members in the southern province of Skåne to stay at home, because the number of moose is so low this year. But according to reports, that appeal has only reached half the hunters, while the other half are out in the woods looking for prey.

The hunting season has been underway in northern Sweden since the beginning of September. But because of the warm weather it hasn’t been as intense there as usual. Around 90,000 Swedish moose are expected to fall victim to the annual hunt around the country.
