So apparently, every fall in Sweden, moose love to get WASTED off fermented apples. Yesterday, a Swedish man discovered a sh*t-canned moose who had had one too many boozed-up apples and gotten itself completely and irreversibly stuck in a tree. The BBC thinks this moose was an elk for some reason, and tells us more…
A homeowner in southern Sweden got a shock when he found a drunken elk stuck in his neighbour’s apple tree.
The animal was apparently on the hunt for fermenting apples when she lost her balance and became trapped in the tree.
Per Johansson, from Saro near Gothenburg, found the elk making a roaring noise in the garden next door.
He called the emergency services, who helped him free the boozed-up beast by sawing off branches. She spent the night recovering in the garden.
The next day she took herself off into the woods with her hangover.
It is not unusual to see elk, or moose as they are known in North America, drunk in Sweden during autumn, when there are plenty of apples about.
Other residents of Saro had seen the elk on the loose in the preceding days.
Mr Johansson said the elk appeared to be sick, drunk, or “half-stupid”, the Associated Press reported. bbc.co.uk/news/world
