Drunken Elk Rescued From Tree By Firefighters

A Swedish man said an elk became stuck in his tree while drunk from eating fermented apples and required the assistance of emergency responders to get down.


Elk are sensible creatures, they while away the hours munching on grasses, leaves and bark. Elk are not predators, they have a “live and let live” attitude.

The only time elk act up is during the mating season, when the males are prone to engage in antler wrestling, and posturing.

We now learn that elk also act the fool when they are drunk as a skunk. Elk males are a lot like human males, they act stupid when they are drunk or when they are hitting on a female.

The inebriated elk was set free by firefighters, and he stumbled away to  his home to face the wrath of his female partner.
