    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

    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.

    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!

    Might have.......

    This is so funny. I was listening to the scanner on WS Keinan was found and returned home...............Thank God.

    Just a little while ago one of the RCMP said he had just seen a deer eating crab apples off the tree and off the ground. He said we need to get out there and get all of those picked up pretty soon.

    I guess the deer get drunk in Canada.............lol

    As long as they don't go driving with the bear, they're alright!
