White moose are also called albino moose

Hunter shoots rare white moose

A hunter in Värmland in the west of the country has shot a rare white moose, reports news agency TT.

The animal also had the coveted 15-points antler. "I knew there were strong white moose bulls, but this type of chance doesn't come along to just anybody," the hunter to tabloid Aftonbladet. "It's a memory for life."

Of the roughly 400,000 moose in Sweden, only five to ten are white, according to Aftonbladet.
