Drunk Moose Gets Stuck in an Apple Tree in Sweden

Move over chimpanzees. Apparently moose are more closely related to humans than are our primate cousins. At least that’s what I gather after reading about a moose in Sweden that got drunk and ended up stranded in a tree.

Swedish police, whose job it is to investigate drunken moose, believe that Bullwinkle got trashed gorging on fermented apples. Wanting to keep the buzz going, the Cadillac Escalade-sized Eurasian elk (Swedes call moose elk) reached for apples higher in the tree only to get lodged tight. Police removed the animal by cutting the tree down out from under it. The moose staggered off unharmed albeit drunk.

Comment below! While you do I’m off to find some fermented apples.
