drunken moose saga continues!

last week i blogged about the swedish moose who was terrorizing children in his drunken rages. the story has taken a turn for the worse! the drunk moose has fallen through the ice and died! i have learned a valuable lesson about not eating fermented apples on an empty stomach:

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.

I think these moose might benefit from a 12-step program or some carefully targeted public service announcements that illustrate the link between fermented apple eating and the tragic potential consequences. Fermented apple eating hurts everyone. It hurts bad.
