"Wolverines are making an astonishing comeback."

Sweden's wild carnivores are making an unprecedented comeback - with the numbers of bears, wolves, wolverines and lynxes all at levels not seen since the beginning of the 19th century.

Skansen in Stockholm, is the world's first open air museum, and also home to several species of wildlife found in Sweden, including bears, wolves, lynx and of course, some rather morose looking moose.

Kenneth Ekval, zoologist at Skansen, told Radio Sweden more about the recovery in the numbers of these animals.
