Elk stops children in Sweden getting on school bus

For two days in a row, the obstructive animal approached school children near the small village of Vagnhärad an hour from Stockholm, just as the school bus was coming to pick them up. “Two girls couldn’t come to school because of this elk, and had to go home again,” a hunter employed by the local Trosa municipality, told the Sörmlands Nyheter newspaper. Håkan Eriksson, a hunter working for the Trosa municipality, shot a local elk dead at point blank range in 2016, telling the local Eskilstuna-Kuriren that the animal had attacked him. “The elk came in for an attack. I had no time to think. It was either her or me,” he told the newspaper. He said he had managed to load his rifle and shoot the elk when it had been just a metre away from him, forcing him to leap away at the last moment to avoid being crushed under the dying animal. “After tha t I just had to go home and change my underpants,” he joked. Eriksson has previously told Sörmlands Nyheter that it should be easier for municipal hunters to shoot and kill troublesome animals. Sweden’s TT newswire did not name the hunter who reported the most recent elk incident.Source: Google News Sweden | Netizen 24 Sweden
