Birds on berries are getting drunk and disorderly but police say they'll sober up soon
A group of youthful residents who are unable to handle their alcohol have been drifting around the town Gilbert, Minnesota, looking disoriented and narrowly avoiding getting hit by cars. But these aren't teenagers getting drunk. Instead, it's the local bird population. "The Gilbert Police Department has received several reports of birds that appear to be 'under the influence' flying into windows, cars and acting confused," said Police Chief Ty Techar in a statement. An early frost meant that berries had fermented earlier than usual, he explained, and birds were eating them and getting drunk.
