*A woman in Minnesota said she didn’t mean to get a squirrel drunk when she left some old pears outside for it to eat last week. But it happened, and now the squirrel has gone viral for what appears to be its intoxicated state.
According to KMSP and WCCO, Katy Morlok of Inner Grove Heights feels horrible about unintentionally getting her frequent visitor tipsy.
“The old pears I left out for the squirrels had apparently fermented. Whoops!” she captioned a YouTube video of one squirrel that had the reaction of heroin addicts who “nod off” immediately after shooting up. After munching on the fruit, the squirrel slowly allowed gravity to droop its head to the side as it stared off into space. Morlok told KMSP that she hadn’t meant to get the squirrel drunk and removed the pears from her yard when she realized what was happening.
“He came to the feeder the next morning and was fine,” she added in the description of the YouTube video.
The clip, posted Saturday, quickly went viral, drawing more than 57,000 views by early Wednesday. Watch below:
