 Animals and alcohol have always had a strange relationship and we have rounded up the top 10 animal and alcohol stories out there.  

There are stories of animals becoming drunk because of alcohol, some animals enjoying a glass of wine or others being given wine to ward off the flu.

A classic animal alcohol story was reported by the BBC after a drunken elk got stuck in an apple tree.

The animal was apparently on the hunt for fermenting apples when she lost her balance and became trapped in the tree.

Emergency services, helped free the boozed-up beast by sawing off branches. The next day the animal took itself off into the woods with a hangover.

It is not unusual to see elks drunk in Sweden during autumn, when there are plenty of apples about.
