Police: Stop taking selfies with moose

0:56 min
  • Stockholm police say they have had to shoot several moose that have wandered into the suburbs recently as a result of irresponsible human behaviour.
  • The newspaper Mitt i Stockholm reports that people have been stressing the animals, also known as European Elk, by taking selfies with them, meaning the animals have then had to be put down.
  • A policeman tells the newspaper that Stockholmers must leave the animals in peace, adding that "they aren't cute deer, but hundreds of kilos of muscle".
