In Sweden, there are 47,000 wildlife accidents every year. When moose are involved, the consequences are particularly severe because the animal’s long legs and high centre of gravity mean that the upper body strikes the car’s most vulnerable area, the windscreen. Moose are also a major problem in North America, while deer are involved in most wildlife accidents in Germany.
