Opossum breaks into liquor store, gets drunk on bourbon

But was the possum of legal drinking age?

A Florida bar owner opening up shop following the Thanksgiving holiday was met by a drunken opossum polishing off a bottle of bourbon. The sneaky critter made its way into Cash’s Liquor Store and had a festive celebration all her own.

“A worker there found the opossum up on the shelf next to a cracked open bottle of liquor with nothing in it. Assuming the opossum drank it all, he brought her to us, and we looked her over,” Michelle Pettis, a wildlife technician in the Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge.

No word on the possum’s brand of choice.
