Keeping hungry moose at bay: a spray?

Researchers in Sweden are hoping that a top secret spray may be able to keep moose from grazing in certain areas, thereby preventing them from damaging young forests. The patented spray can be applied to the top shoots of young pines to discourage moose from eating them.

Swedish television reports that researchers are now testing the spray in the northern forests of Västerbotten.
