Drunk Elk...

Oh boy, I just had to share this with you guys... Too funny!

Drunk Swedish elk found in apple tree near Gothenburg

Drunken elk stuck in tree, Saro, Sweden, 6 September 2011 The elk was apparently searching for fermenting apples when she got stuck
"A homeowner in southern Sweden got a shock when he found a drunken elk stuck in his neighbour's apple tree.
The moose was apparently on the hunt for fermenting apples when she lost her balance and became trapped in the tree.
Per Johansson, from Saro near Gothenburg, found the elk making a roaring noise in the garden next door.
He called the emergency services, who helped him free the boozed-up beast by sawing off branches. She spent the night recovering in the garden.
The next day she took herself off into the woods with her hangover.
Drunken elk are not an uncommon sight in Sweden during autumn, when there are plenty of apples about.
Other residents of Saro had seen the elk on the loose in the preceding days.
Mr Johansson said the elk appeared to be sick, drunk, or "half-stupid", the Associated Press reported."

I found this on the BBC- Europe website...
