Minnesota Birds High on Fermented Berries Terrorize Small Town

Drunk Birds Causing Havoc In A Town. Cops Say They'll Sober Up Soon

The intoxicated state of the birds is due to berries fermenting ahead of time due to an earlier than usual frost.

"Many birds have not migrated south, so it appears to be more prevalent than in past years".

He added: 'It appears that some birds are getting a little more "tipsy" than normal. Also, younger birds' livers can not handle the fermented berries as well as older ones.

Hilariously, the Gilbert Police Department has received so many calls regarding suspicious birds that it was forced to issue a statement telling residents to relax and let the birds do their thing. 2 birds dove into my windshield both on the way to work and on the way home.

The police news release ended with a suggestion that residents of the small northern Minnesota town call if they see "Angry Birds laughing and giggling uncontrollably and appearing to be happy" or "Tweety acting as if 10 feet tall and getting into confrontations with cats".

However, once they rehydrate and have a bird equivalent of a greasy breakfast, the feather fellows perk up and fly away unharmed.

The sugar in the berries was fermenting and wasn't being digested properly by the birds, a having an intoxicating effect.

"Oh my! That explains all the birds bouncing off my window lately!"

Drunk birds have been known to have difficultly flying. The answer was bizarrely familiar: the birds were flying under the influence. "We typically see them flying lower than usual through traffic".

"Birds actually do get literally intoxicated when they eat berries that have started fermenting, and that does lead to drunken behavior", she told the outlet. "Sometimes they are picked up after crashing into windows. We will hold them in captivity until they sober up and then set them free". Police initially suspected, ahem, fowl play, but post-mortem examinations found berries in the birds' gastrointestinal tracts and high alcohol levels in a liver sample, according to National Geographic's Owen, suggesting that fermented fruits played a role in their deaths. The officials also expect the birds to sober up soon enough.

"They just get sloppy and clumsy", Dodder said.
