Zlatan sparks controversy after allegedly shooting a moose

The incident is not the first time the 33-year-old striker’s love of hunting has been made apparent.

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has come under fire from animal rights groups in his native Sweden, after he allegedly shot a moose.

The Swedish newspaper Expressen claims the footballing superstar killed the animal “with one shot through its heart”.

“It is problematic,” Camilla Björkbom, of the Swedish Animal Rights’ Union, told Expressen. “It is always problematic when famous people do things like that, because then it looks like they support these type of activities.”

Despite being frowned upon in some quarters however, hunting is legal in Sweden — and this alleged incident is not the first time the 33-year-old striker’s love of the activity has been made apparent (see below).
