Apple SeasonPosted by nick
It’s October and fallen apples dot the pastoral landscape. The red against the green is striking.
Especially for animals longing for the boozy fruit.
Fermentation happens naturally and the sugars in the fruit begin turning to alcohol. Just ask the Sweeds. It’s common to see drunken animals in Nordic country throughout the autumn season.
Just a few weeks ago, Swedish police had to remove an “inebriated elk” that was entangled in the branches of a tree. The local resident who called upon police to help the animal reported that it appeared the elk was on a “day-long bender”.
Who would have thunk fallen apples could be so dangerous?
