Squirrel Gets Drunk On Fermented Pears
A video from the midwest shows a squirrel feeding on fermented pears, with predictable results.
While the famous prison concoction made of prunes purloined from the jail cafeteria and brewed in secret is known to pack a clandestine punch, a squirrel in Inner Grove Heights, Minnesota is apparently a repeat customer at a feeding station set up by resident Katy Morlok. Morlok said that she stopped feeding the temporarily lucky rodent when she realized what was happening, ending the pre-Thanksgiving treat.
Other critters such as moose, fruit bats, and most famously, monkeys have historically exhibited a taste for alcohol when they can get it, proving that humans aren’t the only party animals.
