The Man-made Moose

A hundred years ago the Scandinavian moose – the largest hoofed mammal in Europe – was almost extinct. Today, due to effective moose management, the population nearly exceeds half a million, even though nearly 120,000 are killed during the annual hunt. So the moose population is regarded as “man-made”.

However, this human success has brought problems for people and moose alike. This fascinating film features not only the natural history of an extraordinary animal, but also its recent unnatural history.
