Ayoung male moose saun­tered into an ad­min­is­tra­tive of­fice build­ing of health­care tech­nol­ogy gi­ant Siemens in Dres­den, Ger­many, last week and got stuck be­hind a glass wall. Dres­den po­lice and wildlife spe­cial­ists spent six hours try­ing to shoo the moose into a con­tainer but even­tu­ally had to use a tran­quil­izer gun af­ter he re­fused to fol­low or­ders. The an­i­mal will be re­leased back into the wild. ... A public health-spurred move to ban the sale of grain al­co­hol in Mary­land— aimed at curb­ing binge drink­ing by col­lege stu­dents—has hit some un­in­tended tar­gets: vi­o­lin mak­ers and bak­ers. Vi­o­lin mak­ers told the Wash­ing­ton Post that noth­ing works bet­ter than Ever­clear grain al­co­hol for mak­ing the var­nishes they use to re­pair chipped or bro­ken mu­si­cal in­stru­ments. Bak­ers use Ever­clear to cre­ate a col­ored paste to paint on fon­dant, the sculpt­able ic­ing used on fancy cakes.

The moose had evaded cap­ture un­til it wan­dered into the Siemens build­ing.
