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.

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 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.
