An elk that was drunk on fermenting apples -- and looking for more -- found itself in need of rescue after becoming stuck in an apple tree in Sweden earlier this week, according to The Local.

Firefighters helped free the animal, according to the report. The story says drunken elk are common in Sweden at this time of year due to the large number of fermenting apples on the ground and hanging from trees.
