After accidentally consuming fermented corn, this little pig found itself experiencing the effects of alcohol.
When the farmer tries to wake him up he rolls down a hill, and when the pig finally stirs, its walk is wobbly and unstable.
Fermentation, a natural process where sugar is converted into alcohol and carbon dioxide, often occurs in fruits and grains.
This process can unintentionally create alcoholic substances that attract animals due to their sweet smell and taste.
For animals, even a small amount of alcohol can be toxic, leading to disorientation, dehydration, and in severe cases, coma or death.
They might even exhibit aggressive behavior or become more prone to accidents, like falling into water or off ledges.
