Looks like humans aren’t the only ones guilty of over-indulging during the holidays.
According to TIME, a wild opossum living in Florida recently broke into and wreaked havoc on a Fort Walton Beach liquor store. On Nov. 24, an employee of the Cash’s Liquors shop “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 Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge. “She definitely wasn’t fully acting normal.”
The female opossum apparently drank a significant amount of bourbon, and she appeared disoriented while excessively salivating. Pettis told the Panama City News Herald, “We loaded her up with fluids to help flush out any alcohol toxins. She was good a couple of days later and was released Thursday night.”
Luckily, Pettis also informed the paper that this boozy little lady was not suffering from a hangover after the incident. Meanwhile, Cash Moore, the owner of the liquor shop, claims the bourbon was aged 21 years.
“It just goes to show that even the animals are impressed with Cash’s,” he said.
On that note, we say let this creature be a lesson to you ahead of holiday party season: Keep your number of drinks in check and don’t be the office opossum.
