Drunken Elk Drowns

At this time of year there’s always a story about an elk or moose as its known in America, falling down drunk after gulping down fermented fallen apples.

However in this case reported in northern Sweden, the elk drowned after falling through the ice of a frozen inlet.

”The elk appears to have eaten too many fermented apples and become confused out on the ice,” Luleå police spokesman Erik Kummu told local media.

Emergency services were alerted but they were unable to save the animal.

For several days prior to the elk’s demise, local residents had contacted police after seeing the animal munch its way through rotting fruit.
