Drunk Squirrels

Oh, dear. I did give my sister some crab apples from our crab apple tree to feed to the squirrel who comes to her patio to chow down on peanuts. Sis needed the crab apples due to the fact that buying peanuts at the store, again and again and again, was getting to be a bit much work. I had no idea that fermented crab apples could make a squirrel drunk. When Sis gets to the bottom of the bag that holds the crab apples I gave to her, I do believe the bottom-of-the-bag crab apples will definitely be fermented. Oh well, if Sis's squirrel, who she has named Tippy, brings along a few of his squirrel buddies for crab apples later in the week, those squirrels are going to have one very wild party.

That is a good story. Poor squirrels probably wondered what hit them. I remember reading a story about a guy I believe in Canada who had a pile of fermenting apples in his garden. While he wasn't home a moose wandered into his area and started eating the apples. The moose got so drunk that he would up stuck in a tree. The guy returned to find a drunk moose in his tree and had to call rescuers. They got the moose down and he swerved away.

Oh my. A drunk moose up a tree had to be a sight. I did read about the effect on fermenting apples on some critters. I also found out that a squirrel can get drunk by eating fermenting magnolia tree blossoms.

My mom and I used to feed the squirrels, and we got them to eat right out of our hands! It's pretty awesome :) but drunken squirrels would definitely be a sight to see :)

Tippy will take peanuts from my sister's hand. However, I also want to see a drunk squirrel at least once.

Sis says the squirrels are burying the crab apples. I bet the squirrels are letting those crab apples ferment underground and will dig them up when it is time to party.

I thought it was a hoot too. Sis says the squirrels are burying the crab apples. I bet they are fermenting their own apples underground and will party when the crab apples are just right.

We have some in our crab apple tree taking and running with crab apples in their mouths. I bet the ones on the ground, the ones I gave to Sis, have started fermenting.

LOL Change his name to Tipsy, because of his wild partying! My grandma had a berry bush, next to her front porch. Us kids were warned not to eat them, so of course, I did and immediately spit them out! She informed us that whenever birds ate those berries, they'd get drunk and start flying crazy, at times into Grandma's windows!

I've heard that pigs running in an orchard and feeding on crab apple windfalls also get tipsy. It would be funny to see pigs wobbling all over the place.

I did see quite a few YouTube videos with animals drunk as could be due to fermented fruits. Apparently, elephants eat fermented fruits and they do get rather tipsy too.

I think a name change for Tippy just may be needed. Oh, a squirrel with a hangover would be a pitiful sight.

I've seen photos and read articles on drunk elephants which eat fermented fruit. It can happen that they sit on the hoods of cars which pass on safaris to rest for a while. This doesn't do the cars good. They look different after such an encounter.

What is this, a novelty? I wasn't aware of such a strange thing! I didn't even know crab apples existed. Maybe I'm a bit back as a mindset?

Fermented apples can also make certain critters drunk. I have never seen a drunk squirrel before. Sis had better call me if one is on her patio.

I learned something new. I did not know you feel crab apples to squirrels and then they get drunk on them. What do they do when they get drunk? Are they nice drunks or mean ones?

Well, watch the video in the discussion and you will see a squirrel drunk on crab apples. I think they are nice squirrels when drunk since they are falling down drunks who can barely walk.

@Corbin5 I wonder what they are like when they are no longer drunk. I wonder if they have AA for squirrels Deborah.
