Drunken moose are terrorizing parts of Sweden, according to multiple media reports.

Earlier this month, an Ingaro man couldn't get into his house because a pack of five intoxicated moose were blocking the front door, according to Metro.

And in Stockholm, another got into a bit of a brawl with a swing set, sending police to the scene.

Apparently, the moose are getting drunk after eating rotten apples.

It's a recurring issue for law enforcement in Sweden when apples start falling from the trees each fall.

Huge animals like moose "can be really dangerous" and become "fearless" after consuming the fermented fruit, Stockholm police spokesman Albin Naverberg told The Local.

In 2011, Swedish rescue workers had to come to the aid of a drunk moose that got itself tangled in a tree.
