The very rare images of a white momentum filmed by a hiker

These are images of great value that a man filmed on August 10 in the county of Värmland, in the west of Sweden. As he walked quietly, the man fell on a completely white momentum.

A very rare species, since according to the Swedish Ministry of the Environment, there would be only one hundred similar animals in the country. On the video, the animal walks peacefully, crossing a small stream, before eating a few leaves.

The white raised by this impetus is not albinism, but the result of a genetic mutation, assure the scientists. In Sweden, as in Canada, hunting for white elk is forbidden, but hunting for elk is allowed.

In 2017, two twin white elk babies had been seen in Norway in a wood, recalls. There too, they could have been filmed.

However, scientists could not formally determine if they were white elk or albino.
