Beware of Drunk Elks!

Norwegian specialists in the field of environmental protection warn that there are drunk elks wandering around the woods of Norway in connection with the snowless weather. Many animals suffer from intoxication from eating over-fermented fruit. Apples that fall down from apple trees are then covered with a thick layer of snow and elks can not reach the fruit. However, this winter has had almost no snow in Norway, so elks simply eat tons of the fruit and enjoy its effects.

The Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten wrote that alcohol-intoxicated animals are rather dangerous for people. Vet Paul Stamberg said that it was the first time that he has had to deal with drunk elks. He said that the drunk elks’ behavior is very similar to the behavior of drunk humans. Some of the elks are completely harmless, while others are aggressively stumble around.
