HELSINKI (AP) - Schoolchildren in western Sweden received a surprise visit during their handicraft class when a moose jumped through the window.

The teacher and a dozen teenagers fled the classroom Monday to another part of the school and locked themselves into a room to escape the thrashing animal, which had wounded itself on the broken window.

Goteborg police spokesman Thomas Fuxborg told daily Aftonbladet that the young moose "was in a panic and so were the children and teacher."

Officers broke a window to let the schoolchildren out and later shot the wounded animal that couldn't find its way out of the school.

Except for the moose, no one was injured during the incident at the high school in Molndal, near the western city of Goteborg.
