Up to a dozen elk will be transported from Sweden to Denmark in an effort to help maintain local marshlands.
Thousands of birch trees have overrun the large marsh area Lille Vidmose in northern Jutland, Denmark. Unable to control the trees' growth using local workers, Denmark is turning to a foreign workforce of the four-legged variety.
 
Ten to twelve elk, known in northern America as moose, will be brought from Sweden next year to serve as tree trimmers. The elk will join local red deer in a 30-kilometre enclosed area in Lille Vidmose. 
 
The Local Denmark reported that as local workers prepare for the visitors, one can only hope the elk force is not the alcoholic variety that gets stuck in the very trees they're supposed to be eating.
