Animals like alcohol in Sweden - level 3

Animals like alcohol in Sweden - level 3

13-09-2011 12:00

This is a true story from Sweden. One man returned home late at night and came across a most unusual sight. An elk stuck in an apple tree. He called the firemen. When they arrived, they bent the tree, cut some branches and then it became clear how the elk got in the tree in the first place. He was drunk.

Drunken elks are actually common in Sweden during the autumn. The apples fall to the ground and start to make alcohol. Elks enjoy the tasty alcoholic drinks.

After he was freed, he stayed on the grass for a few hours and then ran back to the woods.
