Drunk Elk Shot Dead After Attacking Boy

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Police shot dead a drunken bull elk that attacked a young boy while intoxicated on fermented apples, Swedish daily Aftonbladet reported Monday.

The elk attacked the 8-year-old as he played in the garden of his home in the town of Karlskoga in central Sweden. The youngster was badly shaken but escaped serious injury, suffering only a bruised neck.

Elk, common in sparsely populated Sweden, are normally shy creatures but they can become aggressive when they eat rotten apples, a favorite winter snack that can make them drunk.
