OTTAWA, Ontario – Residents in one Canadian community say they’ve noticed local raccoons staggering drunkenly and passing out on the ground in the middle of the day.

Emily Rodgers told CBC News about seeing one apparently inebriated raccoon in her backyard, dragging his legs, wobbling, and having a hard time standing up. "You could tell something was wrong with him for sure."

Another resident, Julie Fong, said her husband saw one of the plastered animals stumbling along, just looking completely off - like somebody who may have had a few extra libations.” Fong thinks it was the same animal her husband spotted lying on the round beam of a fence near their house, its paws dangling. She thinks it later stumbled under their porch to sleep off the bender.

So, what's going on in the Nation's Capital? How come there is a sudden issue with drunkenness amongst raccoons?

The answer is quite innocent, actually; an Ottawa naturalist reckons that raccoons are likely consuming more alcohol than they can handle from fruit fermenting on the ground. Theest thing residents can do is to leave the animals alone. Anyone concerned for the raccoon’s health should call animal control.
