According to AP News, a liquor store employee in For Walton Beach, FL found an opossum next to a broken, empty bottle of bourbon. They reported the animal was taken to Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge by a police officer.
“A worker there found the opossum up on a shelf next to a cracked open bottle of liquor with nothing in it,” said Michelle Pettis, a technician at the refuge. “She definitely wasn’t fully acting normal.”
“We loaded her up with fluids to help flush out any alcohol toxins,” Pettis said. “She was good a couple of days later.”
