Drunk badger disrupts traffic in Germany
Wed Jul 8, 2009 6:51pm BST

BERLIN (Reuters) - A badger in Germany got so drunk on over-ripe cherries it staggered into the middle of a road and refused to budge, police said Wednesday. A motorist called police near the central town of Goslar to report a dead badger on a road -- only for officers to turn up and discover the animal alive and well, but drunk......

( apparently German motorists "don't need no stinkin' badgers" )

Ach du lieber! Ve need ein Dachs hund ("Badger Dog"winking smiley to take charge of the betrunken badger!

Having said that, I recently saw an image of a live badger that went through a hay baling machine. There he was - held by the baling twine, and mad at the world as only a badger can be.

I have seen Cedar Waxwings (bird) that have become berry-intoxicated. Google search on birds and intoxication seems to suggest that these birds are, perhaps, the bird most commonly affected by fermented berries or fruit.
