Wildlife Road Accidents Increasing

Published onsdag 17 februari 2010 kl 12.38

Swedish highway authorities have confirmed more rapidly increasing statistics of accidents involving wildlife on the nation's roads.

Last year, there were 44,000 such accidents - 10,000 more than just a few years ago.

These involve collisions with the moose or European elk, deer, wild pigs and other wild creatures.

In contrast to the belief that most of the accidents take place in the in the sparsely populated northern forests, the highest accident figures come from the province of Kronoberg in the far south.

The lowest figures come from the Baltic island of Gotland.
