Please don't call police about 'drunk' birds, department says

Drunk birds causing trouble in Minnesota town

A small town in Minnesota has been besieged by drunk birds.

Luckily, Techar says that, much like people, the birds will sober up after their berry bender and stop harassing unsuspecting townsfolk.

The department noted that it's still early enough in the fall season that not all birds have begun their southern migration, which means more of them are still in Gilbert.

The statement ends on a humorous note, advising Gilbert residents to alert the police department if they see "Tweety acting as if 10 feet tall and getting into confrontations with cats" or "any other birds after midnight with Taco Bell items".

"Oh my! That explains all the birds bouncing off my window lately!" said one. Berries ferment with the cold, and because of an early frost in the area, the birds were eating the intoxicating berries before their planned trip to the south for the winter.

Numerous species who have overindulged on the boozy berries traditionally fly south for winter, leading them to gorge on the fruit in a bid to build up fat for the journey.

"Generally, younger birds" livers can not handle the toxins as efficiently as more mature birds'.

How does a bird get drunk?

The reason: The birds have apparently found themselves with an unexpected excess of booze.

As for Gilbert's winged drunkards, "There's no need to call law enforcement about these birds as they should sober up within a short period of time", per the police statement, which adds that there are some bird-related occurrences that should be called in.

As Dodder told The Post, "Sometimes, they just need a bit of time in a quiet setting to recover".
