Bunch of hunts kill wrong elk!
HUNTERS in Norway shot dead two elk – before they realised they were firing through a fence into a ZOO.
The group said dogs used to hunt the animals had found their way into the park enclosure and they hadn’t realised they were shooting into the Polar Park zoo, near Narvik,
Heinz Strathmann, the zoo’s chief executive, said: “I think this is very sad, and it’s not OK. We had five elks, now we have only three.”
But Arne Nysted, who chairs the wildlife tribunal in Troms County, said there was no need to punish the men.
He added: “This is a regrettable mistake made in connection with lawful hunting on the outside of the park.
“It was a fatal error, but it was not done on purpose.”
