The town of Gilbert, Minnesota has a bird problem. Specifically, a drunk bird problem. Police have been fielding calls about birds acting strangely, flying into windows, and barely avoiding cars. They believe the birds are intoxicated from eating fermented berries. Gilbert Police Chief Ty Techer calls it a ‘berry bender’ and says an early frost is making the birds extra tipsy this year. He says the problem should go away once the birds sober up.
