Husband exonerated. Wife was murdered by an elk!

Police questioning suspects

A Swedish man who was arrested on suspicion of murdering his wife has been cleared, after police decided she was probably killed by an elk.

Ingemar Westlund, aged 68, found the dead body of his wife Agneta, 63, by a lake close to the village of Loftahammer in September 2008.

He was immediately arrested and held in police custody for 10 days.

Now the case has been dropped after forensic analysis found elk hair and saliva on his wife’s clothes

Although the murder investigation was dropped five months ago, details have only just emerged and the police plan to hold a news conference next week to explain what happened.

They think the elk was drunk.

      Ummmm, I’m not sure I get your point, Jäg, especially since your link doesn’t work for me.

      I’ve been kissed by an orphan baby moose. Have you? I think I know what a moose looks like.

      I’ve almost killed dozens of them, while driving a motor vehicle and I’ve chased stupid tourists away from trying to feed them on the side of the road during mating season.

      Hint: That’s not a moose in the above photo. It has pointy antlers.

    Every country crosses up some other’s name. I recall the first time I smacked up against what Scots call a Red Deer – and realized it was a Wapiti.

      If we don’t know anything about them or even what to call them, how can we declare war on them?

      Oh, right, that’s not important anymore.

      Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq…
