Drunken Moose Rescued from Apple Tree in Sweden

A drunk Swedish moose had to be rescued from a tree after it got wasted on fermented apples, south of Gothenburg. The animal got stuck when it attempted to climb the tree in search of more fruit. It was discovered by a local man, Per Johansson of S�r�, when he returned home from work.


Rescuers managed to free the moose the same night, after which the drunk animal laid on the ground overnight before finally getting up the next morning and wandering off with a hangover.


Sweden is one of the last European countries the moose is native to and residents often see the creatures venturing from their forest habitats.


Animals can get drunk when they eat rotting fruit that has fallen from trees. The fruit ferments and becomes alcoholic.
