Seemingly drunk moose found tangled in tree in Swedish garden
STOCKHOLM -- A seemingly intoxicated moose has been discovered entangled in an apple tree by a stunned Swede.
Per Johansson said he heard a roar from his vacationing neighbor's garden in southwestern Sweden late 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, the 45-year-old 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 Thursday.
Other neighbors 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."
