    A walkabout elk wandered into a family house in southern Sweden, but after making itself at home the animal had to be put down due to grisly injuries sustained during the break-in. The elk was spotted walking around in a residential area of Helsingborg on Monday morning. It then proceeded to jump through a window and smash its way into a house, setting of an alarm in the process. Luckily nobody was home, as the family was away on holiday. Police were quickly on the scene and encountered the elk exploring the living room. A hunter was then dispatched as...

    The Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced Friday that it will not allow cheese makers use wooden boards to age their cheese - a ruling that would effectively wipe out artisanal cheeses.The FDA's ruling came to light after several cheese makers in New York were cited - despite state laws that allow the use of wood boards."Reports showed that the porous structure of wood made it susceptible to the colonization of bacteria on the surface and inside the wood," Monica Metz, the branch chief for the FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition's Dairy and Egg Branch, wrote...

    Swedish school children fled their woodwork class on Monday when an elk broke in through a window and reacted violently when it found it couldn't get out. Monday afternoon was no ordinary school day for students at Sörgårdsskolan, in Mölndal, western Sweden. Shortly after lunch, an elk calf entered though one of the classroom windows. The junior high school pupils beat a hasty retreat. "The elk felt cloistered in there in the confined space," regional police spokesman Thomas Fuxborg told The Local. "So when the children had locked themselves into the adjoining paint supply room, they could hear the elk...

Mettler was called to the north side of Aurora on Monday morning after reports from residents that a moose was on the loose and apparently unable to find its way back into the woods. "It looked like it came into the north side of town from the east ... and then got trapped,'' Mettler said. "There's a tall fence there that keeps people out of the old mine dumps and mine...

    GILPIN, Colo. - Two women are hospitalized after being attacked by a moose. Jacquie Boron, 50, said she and her friend, Ellen Marie Divis, 57, were walking their dogs in Gilpin County, near Black Hawk, Sunday around 10 a.m. when they heard a noise behind them and the moose went after them. "All of a sudden I looked up and he was looking right at me and grunted and then charged, with his head down. He got me in the chest and that threw me back on the ground," said Boron.

"How Canadian is that?" Tyler Evans said upon learning a moose was behind the safety precaution. "In the States they're getting locked down because of bomb threats, and we're getting locked down because of a moose," the Patrick Fogarty student said.

    Serious flaws have marred the province’s strategy to reduce moose-vehicle collisions, says wildlife expert Tony Clevenger. According to Clevenger, Newfoundland’s moose control policy between 2003 and 2011 was based on flawed science. And the collision mitigation methods in place at that time — public awareness campaigns, signs and brush cutting — were ineffective and poorly managed. Clevenger, a Montana State University research scientist based in Alberta, testified Tuesday in the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador as part of the ongoing class-action lawsuit involving moose-vehicle collisions. “I can see no explanation why the Newfoundland Department of Transportation and Works has...

    GRAND PORTAGE, Minn. — For moose, this year’s winter-long deep freeze across the Upper Midwest is truly ideal weather. The large, gangly creatures are adapted to deep snow: Their hollow fur insulates them like fiberglass does in a house. And the prolonged cold helps eradicate pests that prey on moose, like ticks and meningeal worm, or brain worm. Yet moose in Minnesota are dying at an alarming rate, and biologists are perplexed as to why.

Though it was “only” -7.8°C (18 °F), a sharp eastern wind was enough to freeze a large quantity of fish in place. The translation tools used to understand NRK’s article don’t exactly remove all language barriers, but it seems that Aril Slotte of Havforskningsinstituttet, a marine research institute, believes that the fish might have been chased by a predator, and that’s why there were so many grouped together that closely.

It’s not just polar bears that are going to be affected.” Hoping to get a better handle on...
