On A Very Special Installment Of Drink Tank: Drunken Elks

Nov. 11 (Bloomberg) -- Drunken elks attacked a retirement home in Sweden before being scared off by armed hunters, the Guardian reported, citing Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter.

The elks surrounded the building in the southern district of Oestra Goeinge, the newspaper said. Hunters arrived after police with dogs failed to disperse the group, which had eaten large
quantities of fermented apples, the Guardian said.

Incidents involving drunken elks have increased in Sweden, where an elk last year stole a bicycle from the garden of an elderly couple, the newspaper said. The bike was found several
miles away, damaged beyond repair. In Norway, a female elk recently attacked three joggers, the Guardian said.

"It's not unusual for elks to get drunk,'' forester Fredrik Jonsson told the newspaper. "They don't recognize the difference between fermented and non-fermented and stuff themselves down to the last apple.''

For some reason this post really reminds me of the Minnesota Association of Rogue Taxidermists (google it!). I can't find a drunken elk, but this is along similar lines.

Though alone, when I scrolled down yer page and saw the "cork" I said "Oh my God" out loud.
