Local residents of a suburb near the Canadian capital of Ottawa have seen drunken raccoons that are probably intoxicated by fermented berries.
The drunken animals were noticed by neighbors in Stittsville, who noticed something strange about the listless creatures.
"He couldn't really move," Emily Rodgers said Canadian Broadcasting Corporation on Friday after she saw a raccoon in her back yard.
"He dragged his legs, he wobbled and struggled to get up.

& # 39; You would know for sure that something was wrong with him. & # 39;
After Rodgers noticed little change over the course of a few hours, she reported to the authorities who came to remove the raccoon.
The day before, another neighbor, Julie Fong, also called city workers when she noticed a raccoon who behaved strangely at her house.

"There was a drunken raccoon under our deck."
Earlier on Thursday, Fong said her husband saw a raccoon resting on a fence. She believes it was the same animal.
Experts with animals say that the raccoons are unlikely to stop eating fruit falling from trees. The fruit is then fermented by the heat, which causes the intoxicating effect
"He said it was a bit stumbling, just looking away, [as if] someone who might have had some extra libations would walk," Fong said.
