Swedish Police Finger Moose As Murder Suspect
By Dave Hurteau
Here’s one from F&S Shotguns Editor, Phil Bourjaily, who notes:
It's like those Swedish subtitles from Monty Python and the Holy Grail ("A moose bit my sister once") but gone terribly wrong.
To which I would just add, “No realli! She was Karving her initials on the møøse with the sharpened end of an interspace tøøthbrush given her by Svenge - her brother-in-law - an Oslo dentist and star of many Norwegian møvies: "The Høt Hands of an Oslo Dentist", "Fillings of Passion", "The Huge Mølars of Horst Nordfink."
From AOL News:
Swedish police say they've cleared a man who was arrested for allegedly murdering his wife after deciding the culprit was most likely a moose.
Police spokesman Ulf Karlsson says "the improbable has become probable" in the puzzling death last year of 63-year old Agneta Westlund. She was found dead after an evening stroll in the forest. . . .
The tabloid Expressen says hairs and saliva from a moose — aka a European elk — were found on the victim's clothes.
