— STOCKHOLM, Sweden — A gang of drunken moose barred a man from entering his home in suburban Stockholm on Tuesday, leaving the frightened homeowner no choice but to call police.

“Five drunken moose were threatening a resident who was barred from entering his own home,” read an incident report on the website of the Stockholm police department.

The incident involved four adult moose and one calf, all of which were intoxicated after having eaten fermented apples that had fallen from the homeowner’s apple tree.

The homeowner was instructed to clear his yard of fermented apples in order to avoid future incidents.
