Moose Hunt Begins in Southern Sweden

The hunting season for Moose or European elk has begun in southern Sweden -a month after the season opened in the north.

The Swedish hunters' asociation say they plan to bag more than last year's 83,500 animals because of the increase in the moose population in Sweden - and the main targets will be this year's calves.

Forest owners fear that a too-large moose population will cause heavy winter damages to newly-planted trees.
