Moose Over!

Now here is an interesting article. Apparently Norway is stricken with drunken moose. I found this article so bizarre I wanted to post it this morning. Norway is often dubbed one of the best places in the world to live and ...after viewing their newspapers ...I agree. I don't remember the last time the moose held a block party in my neighborhood ...gives a whole new meaning to Moose lodges! The article suggests clapping if you come across the perp ...Now, I can't speak for everyone but if I come across a 1,200 lb. drunken moose I won't be applauding! However this was not the fun in Norway does not end there. Apparently beastiality is growing in popularness as well. Now for those of you who don't know ...this is sex with mans best friend! Now correct me if I'm wrong ...isn't Norway home of little blond dutch girls in tight bustiers? Why are these people probing pets poop? In a recent article they talk of a young girl with a strong desire to have sex with her horse. She called in to ask if it was illegal. ...Well sweetie, maybe you should try applauding a drunken moose.

Enjoy the read.....

Drunken moose alert in southern Norway
Experts are not sure how it will affect moose behavior, but if you meet Norway's 'King of the Forest' in the southern part of the country, he could be intoxicated - and potentially dangerous.

According to a report from the Newspapers' News Bureau (ANB), the reason behind the warning is this year's early snowfall.
A warm summer has led to an unusual bounty from the region's fruit trees. The sudden and early snowfall has left some fruit under snowy cover, while still more remains on the branch. This fruit is fermenting, and also a readily available and tempting source of food for the region's moose.
"This is the first time I have heard that moose are getting drunk. But I assume that they react the same way people do to intoxication - some become harmless while others are the exact opposite," said district veterinarian Paul Stamberg in Kristiansand.
Martin Kolberg, head of the local animal committee in Telemark, warns people to beware of drunken moose.
"Be careful when you approach moose that have been munching apples for days. Their behavior can alter and they can become frighteningly aggressive. Clap and see how it reacts. If it doesn't retreat but instead comes even closer, by all means stay vigilant. It can be intoxicated and attack," Kolberg told newspaper Faedrelandsvennen.
