A seemingly intoxicated moose has been discovered entangled in an apple tree in Sweden.

Per Johansson, 45, says he heard a roar from his neighbour's garden in south-western Sweden late on Tuesday and went to have a look.

There, he found a female moose kicking about in the tree. The animal was likely drunk from eating fermented apples.

With the help of police and rescue services, Mr Johansson later managed to set the moose free in part by sawing off tree branches.

But the animal appeared confused and wandered into Mr Johansson's garden, where she was still resting on Thursday.

Other neighbours in the Gothenburg suburb of Saro had seen the animal sneaking around the area for days.

Mr Johansson said the moose appeared to be sick, drunk, or "half-stupid".
