Only 24 destinations? I suppose there should be a parking / rest area in front of the sign, so the drivers can stop and read it?

At x-type's picture they are about 56
But the difference is - on the one with 24 it is supposed drivers will read them while driving, on the other with 56 - they are supposed to be read by pedestrians, who can quite easily stop without causing trouble for others.

It's strange because in the rest of the world animals in signs are just generic. In Italy, and I guess in most of Europe, there are two such signs:


and


meaning respectively "danger - wild animals" and "danger - domestic animals". It does not mean that only deers and cows can be on the road.

Until some years ago, in Castelplanio (AN), where I was born and raised, there was a "attraversamento ricci" sign (hedgehog crossing).

Of corse this sign, and yours, are illegal.

Well, well... I do not think this is absolutely correct, but it depends on the circumstances.

The Vienna Convention on Road Signs and Signals states the following: "Warning of a section of road on which there is a particular danger of animals crossing shall be given by a symbol representing the silhouette of the animal, domestic or wild, most frequently encountered, such as symbol A, 15a for a domestic animal and symbol A, 15b for a wild animal."

As the elks are very common in Scandinavia, it is rather natural to display the symbol of an elk. The assortment varies across countries. For instance, Sweden has seven official variants: elk, deer, cow, horse, reindeer, sheep and wild boar.

I don't think that its a government made sign though, because it says 'km'

I also have seen pictures with more weird signs in Sweden. For instance: 'OBS! Lekande katter!' ('Attention! Playing cats!'). I will try to ifnd a picture of this one.
