A Swedish man was barred from entering his own home by a gang of elk drunk from eating rotten apples.
Four rowdy elk and one calf blocked him from walking up to his house in Ingaro, an island in Stockholm’s suburbs, after consuming one too many of the fermented fruit.
He was forced to call cops to come and deal with the rowdy quintet.
Police spokesman Albin Näverberg told the Mirror that the man was right to call in authorities.
“They can be really dangerous. They become fearless,” he said. “Instead of backing away when a person approaches, they move toward you. They may even take a run at you.”
The elks had gone by the time police arrived but the man was told to keep his garden clear of food, especially decayed food that will make animals like elks drunk.
Swedish police gets plenty of calls about drunk elks during the Fall months so these kind of stories aren’t all that rare, actually.
