When Per Johansson of Särö, south of Gothenburg, Sweden returned home from work on Tuesday it was dark outside and the rain was coming down hard. Suddenly Johansson heard a bellowing noise from the garden next door.
“I went over to take a look and spotted an elk stuck in an apple tree,” Johansson said.
The elk, which was eating fermented apples, was totally smashed and had to be rescued from the tree by the fire brigade. A counselor was called in to discuss the elk’s alcohol problem and suggest help, but the elk was in denial and said it had no alcohol problem.
“I’m just a social fermented apple eater,” insisted the elk.
