Reports of rabid raccoons terrorizing a West Virginia neighborhood turned out to be exaggerated.

The raccoons didn’t have rabies. They simply found some fermented crabapples, and apparently, are rather surly drunks.

“We have had calls on suspected rabid raccoons twice over the last two days,” the Milton Police Department wrote on Facebook. “Turns out they appear to be drunk on cranapples”.

Police recently hauled in two drunk raccoons, although catching them was a “community effort.” After the animals sobered up, the officers released them into the woods unharmed.
