Dateline Sweden, birthplace of a syndrome and a babe princess -- and now home to marauding drunken moose.

The Associated Press reports:
Residents of an elderly home in southern Sweden had to deal with a pair of intoxicated moose. The moose — a cow and her calf — had become drunk over the weekend by eating fermented apples they found outside the home in Sibbhult, southern Sweden, said Anna Karlsson, who works there.

Police managed to scare them off once, but the large mammals returned to get more of the tempting fruits. This time the moose were drunk and aggressive, forcing police to send for a hunter with a dog to make them leave.

Police did not pursue the culprits, but made sure all apples were picked up from the area, local police chief Bengt Hallberg said. No one was hurt.
The water buffaloes can't be far behind, and you don't want to see those animals drunk.
