Sweden has around 400 thousand moose during summer, making t 28 12, 3:51am

@Danelaw What do they call Elk then?
Edit: Oh that's what that Wapiti is... so how would you tell them apart if they were both Elk?
Edit2: Sheesh the entimology... Elk referred to a deer as big as a horse and the English mostly didn't know what one looked like so they applied it to the Elk (Wapiti). Then for moose they used the local name for it. So we should be calling Moose "Elk" and Elk "Wapiti".
