A homeowner in southern Sweden got a shock when he found a drunken elk stuck in his neighbour's apple tree.

The moose 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.

Drunken elk are not an uncommon sight 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.

Another elk got drunk and killed a woman a couple years ago.

"The European elk, or moose, is usually considered to be shy and will normally run away from humans. But Swedish Radio International says the animals can become aggressive after eating fermented fallen apples in gardens."

Me and these elk have a lot in common

Just don't get drunk and kill anybody, Irish.


#7

Hahahahaha, but they should have eaten the damn thing!


#8

If an elk is drunk and you eat enough meat, do you get drunk yourself?

That would be the awesome-est thing ever.

Haha before I read the article I imagined a drunken moose falling out of a tree onto the poor woman.

We can't be too judgmental of the elk here.

Drunk off fermented, rotten fruit and lodged in a tree - happens to the best of us!


#11

there's an actual city called gothenburg?


#12

Yes, but the name is referring to this kind of goths:


not the other kind.

I like how they use "Swedish" as a euphemism for "irish"

Clever!
