A Minnesota woman removed some bad pears from her fridge and left them outside for the squirrels – one of which was recorded in the home video, looking drunk on the fermented fruit.
“The old pears I left out for the squirrels were obviously ripe. Oops! he said.
Katy Morlok, who made the video, told Fox 9 in Minneapolis that the squirrel first ate a little and then ran away. But when he returned, he was clearly intoxicated. After realizing what was happening, he took the forbidden fruit.

His video shows the critic seemingly dazed, hiding his front paws on his hidden legs on the weekend with his front paws.
The squirrel appears to sway and rock, its legs firmly on a block of wood. But his head starts to tilt to one side and then snaps to the other.
“Those pears were so old, I bet they fermented,” the woman said at the station. “And then he got drunk, and that’s not what I wanted to do.” I went out and grabbed all the pears.

The squirrel, whom he described as a frequent backyard visitor named “Lil Red,” seemed to have recovered from his snack the next day.
“He came back for his little hangover in the morning and he’s been fine ever since,” the woman said at the station.
The sugars in the fruit can be fermented in the refrigerator if exposed to yeast.

The discarded fermented fruit has been linked to similar events in the past, including a packet of drunk raccoons spotted in Canada last fall and another packet in West Virginia that authorities had originally suspected of rabies – just to be discovered, swollen on their feet.
