Opossum Breaks Into Bottleshop, Gets Absolutely Hammered
An opossum in Florida has finally recovered after breaking into a liquor store and getting totally wasted.
After opening the store last week, employees found the opossum laying down next to a broken – and empty – bottle of bourbon.
"She came in from the outside and was up in the rafters, when she knocked a bottle of liquor off the shelf," bottlo owner Cash Moore told the Northwest Florida Daily News.
"When she got down on the floor she drank the whole damn bottle."
Michelle Pettis, from the Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge, said the female opossum appeared pale and disoriented and was salivating excessively.
"A worker there found the opossum up on a shelf next to a cracked open bottle of liquor with nothing in it," Ms Pettis said.
"Assuming the opossum drank it all, he brought her to us, and we looked over her and she definitely wasn’t fully acting normal."
The marsupial was pumped with fluids to flush out the alcohol in her system. She sobered up in a few days and was later released unharmed.
The opossum also appeared to have escaped a dreadful hangover, according to Ms Pettis. And a big UberEats bill, it seems.
