Drunk Swedish Moose Gets Caught in Tree

A drunk moose got caught in a tree while foraging for apples.

No, you don’t have to read that twice. It’s a well known fact—at least in Sweden—that moose often get drunk from eating fermented fruit in the late summer.

In this peculiar case, a beast managed to stumble into the wedge of a tree, lifting itself off the ground and getting inevitably trapped within its branches. It had to be freed by fire crews, who chopped the trees of the branches while keeping it calm.

After being freed, the drunk elk staggered a few feet before collapsing into a drunken stupor—sleeping off its inebriation. The owner of the garden in which the tree was located tended to the moose until the next morning, when it woke up, visibly shaken but unhurt.
