Here’s something you don’t see every day. An elk in Sweden snacked on one too many fermented apples and found himself hung up in a tree.
Apparently the fella had been on a bender for a while, as a suspected drunken elk had almost run into a car in the same area earlier in the day.
The fire department was called and managed to bend the branches of the tree enough to set the big fella free. Elated to be untethered, the beast promptly wobbled to the ground and proceeded to sleep it off. He awoke the next morning, and wandered away, probably in search of a 20,000 mg Advil LiquidGel.
Drunken elk are a common occurrence in Sweden in the autumn, as ripe apples fall from trees and ferment on the ground, making a delicious if dizzifying snack for the critters.
This one was just lucky that none of his buddies were around to scrawl “I Blow Reindeer!” across his forehead while he was incapacitated.
