It's official: Drunk squirrels are no different than intoxicated humans.
The groundbreaking discovery was made by a scient...uh...Minnesota woman who went viral about a decade ago when her pet pig tried rumbling down some stairs.
Katy Morlok, who goes by PiggyGirl2010 on YouTube, has seen her drunk squirrel video go viral with more than 250,000 views as of this writing.
The Inver Grove Heights resident said the squirrel started acting goofy after she left out some old pears for it to snack on.
"The old pears I left out for the squirrels had apparently fermented. Whoops! He came to the feeder the next morning and was fine!" she explained in the YouTube story.
Had she not clarified how the critter got drunk, everyone likely would've assumed the squirrel watched the Vikings choke against the Cowboys and relieved the misery with a stroll to the liquor cabinet.
Happy Thanksgiving, squirrel. Maybe take it easy on the wine...
