Intoxicated moose tangled in tree

Stockholm - A seemingly intoxicated moose has been discovered entangled in an apple tree by a stunned Swede.

Per Johansson, 45, says he heard a roar from his vacationing neighbour's garden in southwestern Sweden late on Tuesday and went to have a look. There, he found a female moose kicking about in the tree. The animal was likely drunk from eating fermented apples.

With the help of police and rescue services, Johansson later managed to set the moose free in part by sawing off tree branches.

But the animal appeared confused and wandered into Johansson's garden, where she was still resting on Thursday.

Other neighbours in the Goteborg suburb Saro had seen the animal sneaking around the area for days. Johansson said the moose appeared to be sick, drunk, or "half-stupid".

    The rich apple flavor will blend with the alcohol and sink into the moose meat in that time, thus perfecting the flavor as required for Appled Moose Steaks™. Try them today!
