Canadians are faced with an invasion of raccoons behaving as drunk. Most drunken animals were seen in a suburb of the country's capital, Ottawa.
A local resident Emily Rogers told about a meeting with a sweeping animal. A raccoon entered the yard of her house, barely holding on to its feet. He stumbled, fell, struggled to rise - the typical behavior of someone who went too far with alcohol. Realizing that something was wrong with the raccoon, Emily called the Animal Protection Service, after which the beast was taken for examination.
According to biologists, the cause of intoxication may be fermented fruits that fell from trees. Experts advise not to try to sober up animals. Having met a drunken raccoon, it is best to let him sleep, leaving him alone.
