According to this,

Canada puts birds drunk on fermented berries in mini 'drunk tanks'


Canadians are concerned about birds getting drunk on frost killed berries that have converted their sugar into alcohol. To deal with it they are converting some hamster cages into "drunk tanks" for the birds to sober up in.
I am waiting for the Animal ACLU to come along and file an injunction against the practice on the grounds that the birds are being imprisoned without benefit of counsel and without proper charges being filed.

I for one am all for drunk birds. Maybe they won't be so loud and cheery in the mornings if they are all hung over! :D

Well, I never had the pleasure of seeing a goose that was pie-eyed, attempt to fly.
Perhaps Canada wants to make sure their geese do not fly in the wrong direction?

That could possibly wreak havoc on commercial aviation traffic.

LOL this is what happens when folks have to much time on their hands. Birds have been getting drunk on berry's for thousands of years just what exactly are they trying to prevent? Whats next drunk hives for bugs that eat fermented berry's?

When I was a kid and we lived semi-out in the country, we had a large plum grove in the front yard. Every year the berries would fall and ferment and the local fowl would get hammered. Blue Jays get even meaner when drunk. Although watching one when all it can do is lie on its back and squawk is funny for a while.

Ya know...I just wonder... you don't suppose all those birds in Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds" were drunk, do you? Scary, if it's true. Just sayin'.
