Way back when I was 10 (back in the 60's), we lived in Northern Maine. One morning about 4 AM we were awakened by my dad yelling and a very loud crashing noise...

My dad had gone to the bathroom to get ready for work, and after showering, had opened the bathroom window to let the steam clear off of the mirror so he could shave...

Finally, he lathered up - still half asleep apparently - and began shaving - only to catch a glimpse of something big and brown out of the corner of his eye... The next moment he felt something - huge- licking the shaving cream off of his face...

A female moose had stuck her head in the window and apparently thought the shaving cream was a treat...

Dad's yell (he wasn't a man who startled easily) spooked the moose who destroyed the bathroom wall (brick) to get away...

By the time we got there to see what was going on, we could see the moose running across the field, wearing the window frame as a necklace...

Awesome story. thats a moose on the loose right there. :D

Some moose like to climb trees, especially when they are drunk.

A stunned Swede discovered a seemingly intoxicated moose entangled in an apple tree.

Per Johansson, 45, who lives in south-western Sweden, says he heard a roar from the garden of his neighbour, who was on holiday, late on Tuesday and went to have a look. There he found a female moose kicking about in the tree. The animal was likely to have been drunk from eating fermented apples.

With the help of police and rescue services, Johansson later managed to set the moose free by sawing off branches.

But the animal appeared confused and wandered into Johansson's garden, where she was still resting on Thursday.

Other neighbours in the Gothenburg suburb of Saro had seen the animal around the area for days. Johansson said the moose appeared to be sick, drunk, or "half-stupid".

Unless you super-glue a slice of bread, buttered side up, onto their backs.

(Always lands on the buttered side) :(

Not necessarily ) >>>

Listening to Mozart, aged 9, playing with his trumpet while retching drove his neighbour to suicide!
