Murder Blamed on Moose, Not Husband

A Swedish man has finally been cleared of the murder of his wife five months ago - after she was found dead with severe wounds in the forest near the southwest town of Västervik.

The police have finally concluded that the killer was undoubtedly a moose - or European elk.

Wildife experts say the moose is a large but shy creature – usually running off when people come strolling by.

But the moose can loose its fear of humans after browsing in suburban gardens after fallen apples - where sometimes fermented fruit gives the animal a good dose of alcohol making him or her intoxicated and aggressive.

The experts also maintain that the moose rarely tries to gore its way out of danger with its massive horns - perfering to deliver a deadly kick.
