Quote by bbc news
A homeowner in southern Sweden got a shock when he found a drunken elk stuck in his neighbour's apple tree.

The moose was apparently on the hunt for fermenting apples when she lost her balance and became trapped in the tree.

Per Johansson, from Saro near Gothenburg, found the elk making a roaring noise in the garden next door.

He called the emergency services, who helped him free the boozed-up beast by sawing off branches. She spent the night recovering in the garden.

[...]

Drunken elk are not an uncommon sight in Sweden during autumn, when there are plenty of apples about.

I've seen plenty of elk here in Finland. Not the drunk kind though

You'd need to know it was drunk, though.

An elk stuck in a tree looks ridiculous enough

they are called elk in Europe. funny story, but when the English first came to North America, they saw American elks and called them elks. this is because they had never actually seen Eurasian elks (moose) with their own eyes, but American elks were consistent with the description of Eurasian elks (huge deer-like things). the word Moose is an Algonquin word for the same animal as the Eurasian elk, so that's what we use in North America.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Looks like a moose to me.

It is a moose

It's a Eurasian Elk, which is one of 6 known subspecies of moose.

You are EXTREMELY WRONG! I have played it. I own an 18W and it would be an awful stereo amp, it's way too bright, breaks up too easily and so on. Secondly, why would a guitar store sell an hifi amp.

There's one connection.

You were stuck in a tree just down the street, but had to wait til you woke up in the morning because they were too busy rescuing the elk.
