Drunken moose rescued from apple tree in Sweden

A moose stuck in an apple tree in Gothenburg, Sweden

A stunned Swede discovered a seemingly intoxicated moose entangled in an apple tree.

Per Johansson, 45, who lives in south-western Sweden, says he heard a roar from the garden of his neighbour, who was on holiday, late on Tuesday and went to have a look. There he found a female moose kicking about in the tree. The animal was likely to have been drunk from eating fermented apples.

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

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

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