Wild animals in Sweden

Major roads may have warning signs and also miles of running fences to prevent wild animals from entering the driveway, but there are absolute no guarantees. Small and bigger animals do venture out on the roads. Sometimes even in major urban areas, at any time. Badgers and foxes are common roadkill and will do little damage to vehicles. However, it will be a different story with deer, wild boar and moose. Hitting a moose will certainly wreck any normal car. Travelers will be glad to survive such a massive impact at high speeds. In the north of the country, there are not just small groups of stray reindeer but also the occasional herd being transferred between grazing areas.

If you hit an animal you call the Emergency Number 112 and report the accident.
