Caucasian moose

The Caucasian moose was a species of moose found in the Caucasus mountains of Russia in Eastern Europe and Asia minor. It is widely believed to be extinct and it went extinct in the 1850's. It's confused with the European elk. Its predators were Asiatic lions (Until the 10th century) , bears, wolves, leopards, and Caspian tigers (Which are also extinct). It lived in Iran, Russia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, and Turkey. The moose of Britain went extinct 1700 years ago and in the 1970's a small population has been reintroduced to Scotland. Some moose and been introduced to New Zealand and Newfoundland. In Wisconsin (Which is where I live), there are 20-40 moose in Northern Wisconsin.
