(Newser) – It's moose-hunting season in Sweden and authorities are investigating one of the most bizarre hunting accidents they've ever seen. Investigators believe a single bullet fired by a hunter ricocheted off a moose and traveled some distance before killing an elderly cross-country skier, the Local reports. The hunter was in shock after the incident and experts say she is unlikely to face charges in the death.
