Drunken Swedish moose drowns after fermented apple binge

STOCKHOLM (AFP) — A moose that became inebriated after binging on fermented fallen apples in northern Sweden drowned when it fell through the ice of a frozen inlet, Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet reported on Thursday.

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

Emergency services were scrambled but they were unable to save the four-legged apple thief.

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

Drunk moose are relatively common in Sweden in late autumn as the animals eat fallen apples which ferment slightly on the ground.

As the moose (big-spending Republicans) nibbles the fermented rotting apples (government pork), he gets quite tipsy. He then wanders onto the ice (campaign trail), in search of more free booze. But the ice (voters) won't support him and the ice (election) breaks, leaving the poor drunken moose to his self-inflicted watery fate.

An excellent allegory for the recent elections.

A moose once bit my brother~~~

Actually I am sad to read this story. I will never forget the drunken birds falling about in the snow at my grandmothers house as a very little girl, they were eating the fermenting berries.....

Moose Prayers UP!

I'm sorry to see the moose die. But he had a nice drunken "several days" there for a while ....... sort of a 'Bull Moose Party'.

Your analogy leads me to think the moose wasn't the only one eating rotten apples.

Not that I like tabloid journalism, but that country is in serious need of celebrities if that's all they have to report.

Roof walking falls through for a juvenile moose who had been drinking Ale.
