more drunk animals

Here is a clip from a French documentary that shows more drunk animals. This is in Africa where some fruit that once is ripe, ferments and contains alcohol. The animals eat this fruit when there is a shortage of water and get a little tipsy…

    In the movie Animals Are Beautiful People by Jamie Uys, released in 1974, some scenes portray elephants, warthogs and monkeys becoming intoxicated from eating fermented marula fruit. Later research showed that these scenes were improbable and, in all probability, staged. Elephants would need a huge amount of fermented marulas to have any effect on them, and other animals prefer the ripe fruit.

    Thank you for posting that!
    Regardless if it is staged or not, it is still an entertaining clip.
