Man calls police on group of ‘drunk elks’ after they prevent him from entering homeFacing a group of elks is scary enough but going up against five that are also drunk is a daunting prospect.
That’s what a man was reportedly faced with when he returned to his home in Stockholm, Sweden.
He was apparently unable to enter his residence because he was being stared down by a rowdy bunch of elk that had got inebriated on fermented apples that had fallen from a nearby tree.
‘Five drunken elk were threatening a resident who was barred from entering his own home,’ a police incident report said.
Police spokesman Albin Näverberg agreed the man had no option but to call the authorities as the animals posed a big threat.
‘They can be really dangerous. They become fearless,’ he told The Local.
‘Instead of backing away when a person approaches, they move toward you. They may even take a run at you.’
This isn’t the first time the man has had to deal with drunken elks.
According to reports his wife was chased by one a couple of years ago
