Residents of Stittsville, a suburb of Ottawa, Ontario, have spotted the raccoons — which are nocturnal creatures — not acting like their usual selves.

"He couldn't really move," one resident, Emily Rodgers, told CBC News of a raccoon she saw on Sept. 2. "He was dragging his legs, he was wobbling, having a hard time standing up. You could tell something was wrong with him for sure."

The day before, another resident, Julie Fong, said a local officer requested permission to enter her backyard, as there had been concern about a raccoon in the area that seemed drunk.

"So that's why this guy was kind of sleeping it off under our deck. There was a drunk raccoon under our deck," Fong said, adding her husband saw the creature earlier that day. "He said it was sort of stumbling along, just looking completely off, [like] somebody who may have had a few extra libations would be walking," she said.

But the raccoons probably aren't drunk off alcohol, according to experts, who say fermented fruit is most likely at fault.

Two people shot in Pittsburgh’s Terrace Village neighborhood

Two people shot in Pittsburgh’s Terrace Village neighborhood Police are investigating after two people were shot in Pittsburgh’s Terrace Village neighborhood on Tuesday night. The shooting happened a little after 10 p.m. in the area of Centre Avenue and Morgan Street. According to Pittsburgh Public Safety, officers responding to a ShotSpotter alert and 911 calls found a man with a gunshot wound to the neck and a woman who was shot in the knee. Both victims were taken to the hospital. Witnesses told police several people were gathered in a courtyard area in the rear of a building when one or more shooters opened fire before running off and possibly getting into a white vehicle. No arrests have been announced.

This is a place for raccoon stuff, cute or otherwise.

OTTAWA, Ontario – Residents in one Canadian community say they’ve noticed the local raccoons staggering drunkenly and passing out on the ground in the middle of the day. Emily Rodgers told CBC News she called the city after seeing one apparently inebriated raccoon in her backyard.

Police officers in West Virginia last November kept getting called about "suspected rabid raccoons" that turned out "to be drunk on crab apples" — and it's not as unusual as it may seem.

It's possible for animals to get “drunk” off fermented berries and other food items. For instance, residents in a Minnesota city last fall called authorities with several reports of birds crashing into windows and ramming into cars. It turned out that the birds were inebriated; reportedly intoxicated by berries that had fermented sooner than usual due to an early frost.

Don Moore, associate director of the Smithsonian National Zoo, told National Geographic in 2015 he's witnessed the effects of animals eating fermented fruit. He said animals often get "sleepy" and "stumble-y" from it, and noted it's common in areas that grow apples.

Experts encourage anyone who spots a "drunk" raccoon, or other animals, to contact animal control.
