Animals that eat apples include elk, bears, mice, rabbits, chimps and birds. Many other animals in the wild eat apples and other fruits if it is convenient.

Some animals have been found drunk after eating apples that have fallen off the tree and fermented on the ground. Elk are attracted to fruit that has fermented. There have been sightings of elk that have been caught in trees due to the effect of the fermented fruit. Mice and rabbits are attracted to apples that have been fermented, and some of these animals store apples until they have reached the proper stage of fermentation.
