Ultimate Party Animals - Part III

We can't resist a good legless animal video here at Why Pandas Do Handstands, and today brings more, rather entertaining images of drunk and disorderly behaviour. Officers from the Colorado Divison of Wildlife were called to a school near Boulder yesterday after sightings of a very wobbly bear in the viccinity. Sure enough, they discovered the giant creature having a hard time putting one foot in front of another. The sight of the stumbling animal sent panic waves running through the Lyons Elementary School were children were just turning up for class. The wildlife officers were able to deal with the problem quickly and efficiently, however. The bear was tranquilised, tagged then locked up while it slept things off. As usual, fermented fruit was to blame for the animal's inebriated state. At this time of the year, bears eat constantly so that they bulk up enough to survive their five month hibernation during Winter. "They are eating 20,000 calories a day this time of year," said Claire Solohub of the CDOW. She reckoned this one had "found itself a nice apple tree or plum tree." You can watch a video of the drunken bear here at WFTV.
