Animals like alcohol in Sweden - level 1

This is a story from Sweden. One man came home at night. And he saw something crazy. He saw an elk in an apple tree. He called the firemen. The firemen came and they cut parts of the tree. Then it was clear how the elk got in the tree. He was drunk.

Drunk elks are normal in Sweden in autumn. The apples go down to the ground and start to make alcohol. Elks like these alcoholic drinks.

When the elk was free, he was lying on the grass for some hours. Then he stood up and ran back to the woods.
