Move over bears, there’s a new animal threat in town: Inebriated mooses (meese? moose?).
An inebriated moose trying to get more fermenting apples apparently lost its balance and ended up stuck in an apple tree in Sweden, The Local website reported.
After returning home from work Tuesday evening, Per Johansson of Saro heard bellowing from his neighbor’s yard, The Local reported.
“I thought at first that someone was having a laugh. Then I went over to take a look and spotted a moose stuck in an apple tree with only one leg left on the ground,” Johansson told The Local.
Hate it when that happens.
Drunken moose are common in Sweden in autumn, when apples are abundant on the ground and in trees in homeowners’ yards, according to The Local.
Johansson surmised the moose had been indulging for quite a while.
“My neighbor recognized it as the animal that almost ran into her car earlier in the day,” Johansson told The Local. “She was pretty sure the moose was already under the influence.”
As far as drunken hijinks go, though, getting stuck in a tree is amateur hour. If that moose was doing naked leg-lifts at a bus stop, maybe I’d be impressed.
