In the Australian city of Kimberley, the mango season ends – fallen fruits roam in the sun, after which red-winged parrots eat them and fall drunk.
Local veterinarians massively accept drunk birds and trying to save them from ethanol poisoning, ABC reports.
According to veterinarian Paul Murphy, most birds die on the way to the vet clinic. In addition, parrots, exhausted from malnutrition, in a drunk state become easy prey for predators.
Their “drunken behavior” also dangerous – parrots crash into windows at full speed, fall to the floor in apartments.
