Drunk Raccoon Ransacks Booze Warehouse

(image: WCSX)

A New York City liquor-warehouse employee shot a video showing some scandalous drinking at his workplace. But it’s not his co-workers who are hitting the sauce—it’s a raccoon.

Phillipp Scott, who works at Union Beer Distributors in Brooklyn, tells UPI that the furry bandit broke into the beer storage facility and broke a few bottles, then helped himself to the spilled contents. Apparently, the ring-tailed mammal didn’t know his limits. By the time Scott and his co-workers happened upon the scene, the raccoon was stumbling around and running into pallets of brew. See for yourself on Scott’s Instagram page.


At press time, authorities could not be reached to determine whether the raccoon was aware of the drunk pub squirrel in England or if this episode could be some sort of copycat (er, copy-squirrel?) crime. We’ll keep you posted.
