    When I lived in the chimney of Idaho, I went to Jerry Johnson hot springs and soaked with a moose. Not the same hot tub. He was in one across the creek about 50 yards away, but still......he was cool.

    Here in Sweden the moose (elk in Europe, Älg in Swedish) population is OK except in one place, the island of Öland. Last year almost a third of all the calves that were born there died in the first week. This year its even worse: half of the calves are dying soon after birth. Despite intensive work by scientists the cause is still unknown.

    That all purpose bogey 'climate change' is certainly not to blame as the problem is local.

    Is calve death the problem - or one of the problems - in the States?
