A drunk squirrel was caught on camera struggling to stand after eating fermented pears left on a picnic table outside a house in Minnesota.
Footage taken last Friday, shows the woodland creature perched on a miniature picnic table outside a house in Inver Grove Heights.
The squirrel is spotted munching on corn and seeds when it suddenly gets a dazed, petrified look in its eyes and leans oddly to the side.
The tipsy animal uses the edge of the little blue bowl to suddenly catch its balance, but it begins to drift backwards again while staring into the sky.
After the strange episode, the creature eventually finds its way back to the bowl of food and continues eating.
The owner of the house, Kathleen Morlok, said the saga began when she cleaned out her refrigerator on Friday.
"I found a very old bag of pears in the bottom. Instead of throwing them away, I threw two onto our deck for Hamlet," Kathleen told DailyMail.com, referring to the family's pet pig.
"I did not realise that he left one under the table outside until I saw the little red squirrel happily grab the whole thing and run away with it into the trees."
