    SE - Boozy moose freed after apple tree ordeal

    The poor moose (actually a Eurasian elk, I think) is okay though after rescue.

    I'll regret this in the morning: Boozing moose is rescued after becoming drunkenly stranded up apple tree
    It's a situation many can sympathise with - having one too many and attempting physical feats you'd never consider while sober.

    But in this case the shamed boozy culprit was not human, but a moose who had become stuck several feet off the ground in an apple tree.

    The inebriated creature managed to trap itself amongst the branches of the tree in Gothenburg after apparently becoming drunk while eating fermented apples.
    ---
    The moose lay on the ground overnight outside Mr Johansson's house, before finally getting up the next morning and wandering off with a hangover.

    Boozing mooses are not uncommon in Scandinavia, where the creatures are occasionally spotted eating rotting fruit which drops to the group and ferments.

    He had heard that after indulging you get hung over and the branch was the closest thing he could hang over.

    WS'ers just because the moose did it doesn't mean you should do it!

    I'm surprised the hunters didn't flock to the area. Moose meat premarinated in apple cider.

    Drunk moose gets stuck in tree

    A man in Sweden has rescued an apparently drunk moose that got stuck in his neighbour’s garden tree on a rainy night.

    Per Johansson of Saro made the bizarre discovery when he returned home from work and heard deep, moaning sounds.

    "It was raining really bad. In the wind I heard something screaming with a very dark voice," Johansson told CNN. "At first I wondered if it was the crazy neighbours, but then I heard it again and went and checked. I saw something really big up in a tree in my neighbours' yard and it was a moose,” he said.

    He was so drunk they let him sleep it off on the ground after getting him out of the tree. I hope the owner picks up the apples now!

    Can you imagine a moose with an alcohol problem!

    A drunk moose in a tree. Hope it went to MAA.
    It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything.

    I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it left.
