Drunk Birds Are Creating Chaos in Gilbert, Minnesota

"It appears that some birds are getting a little more 'tipsy'".

Matthew Dodder, a self-described "bird guy" in Palo Alto, California, told The Washington Post that since there's no such thing as a birdie breathalyzer, you have to look at their in-flight behavior to the level of avian intoxication.

Some birds in Minnesota are getting really flocked up on fermented berries, according to police in the city of Gilbert.

Former rap mogul Marion 'Suge' Knight sentenced to 28-years in jail
Knight, the co-founder of Death Row records , cycled through more than a dozen attorneys on the road to his sentencing hearing. At his pinnacle in the mid-1990s, he was putting out wildly popular records that are now considered classics from Dr.

In a cheeky Facebook message, the police department says there's an easy explanation: The birds are ingesting berries that have fermented earlier than usual this year because of an early frost. That, plus the fact that many birds have yet to migrate south, means more birds are feeling the effects than in past years. "Generally, younger birds' livers can not handle the toxins as efficiently as more mature birds", the department wrote.

He said robins, cedar waxwings and thrushes are the bird species most likely to tie one on since they eat more berries than other species.

Another local said: ' 'This explains why I have hit 7 birds with my vehicle this week'.

Those berries are filled with ethanol, with the substance causing birds to lose their inhibitions, just like human drunks, and pay less attention to potential obstacles or hazards. Berry fermentation is the answer.

As for the drunkards in Gilbert, police said there's no need to call authorities about the birds "as they should sober up within a short period of time". Some birds even slur their speech, errr... song, while inebriated.
