Drunk Elk Stuck in Tree w/Fermenting Apples

http://www.gohuntn.com/ned/reports/1...tree-in-sweden (for picture)

There's always the person who wants just one more drink.
An elk in Sweden found a tree loaded with fermented apples, and had a few mouthfuls too many. Per Johansson came home on a dark, rainy night and heard billowing coming from the garden.

Originally, he thought someone was playing a joke on him, and then he saw the elk in the tree with only one leg on the ground. Johansson called the police, and he and his neighbors and a hunter started sawing limbs to try to free the drunk elk.

Eventually the rescue squad came and bent the tree and the elk stumbled out. The elk passed out, and authorities told Johansson to call the hunter if it appeared to be suffering.

The hungover elk stumbled off in the morning. I'm assuming with only a headache. --Brian McClintock

In Sweden a moose is refered to as an "elk". They do not use the term moose.

Nice article Gal.

I saw the article and a picture on the Drudge Report and the animal is a moose, not an elk.

This is who we are. This is what we do.

moose is translated as "alg" (two dots over the a) sounds a little like elk when you say it.
