Wild Ghost


Norway was very proud of their wild albino moose, which they had lovingly named Albin, and the local hunting community had agreed not to hurt it.

Then along comes a Danish hunter who hadn't herd about this rule, and shoots it. The Norwegian anger seemed like it would never end.

In Denmark the case has mainly been turned into a joke. Not because of the death of poor Albin which everybody agrees is sad and stupid, but because for a while the Norwegian media acted like all Danes ever born had put a bullet in Albin personally, when the truth is that most would run in the opposite direction at the sight of anything with horns.

From what I remember of this case, far from all hunters had agreed to leave the moose alone.
Some even said it SHOULD be shot, as an albino would not survive for long in the wild. (I call bull on that since Albin clearly made it to maturity)
The Dane apparently knew about this, but shot the moose anyway.

Frankly I too find it silly. Even though I am an animal lover...if you're going to go out shooting moose, what's the point in killing all the brown moose but leave the white one alone because he's white?... Does this remind you of anything?

Oh that is sad. In the USA the Native Americans have a white buffalo born on a white man's ranch. The rancher lets all the native americans come pray at the corral where he keeps the white buffalo.

It wasn't just the fact that he shot the albino moose that pissed Norwegians off, it was more the fact that he was so damned arrogant about it.

Reminds me of that albino peacock thing that's apparently famous in the states.

Is Denmark also the reason why Dinosaurs and Dodo birds gone extinct?
