Denmark's wildlife is getting a bit wilder, some on its own, and some by careful intervention.
The big news (anything about an elk is big) is the re-introduction of elk to Denmark after a 5000-year absence. Five young Swedish elk have been given a new habitat on Denmark's Jutland peninsula, in an area that is the largest raised bog in Northern Europe. They'll hopefully become part of a self-sustaining ecosystem in the area.
Recently, a beaver was spotted building a dam on a golf course, the first time in 1000 years beaver have been seen north of the Limfjord. Other animals that have been staging comebacks include wolves, the European jackal, and white-headed eagles.
While the others are on their own, the elk are expected to work for their living; they and red deer are natural tree trimmers, and keep the birch forest under control. More details from TheLocal.dk HERE
