Police in West Virginia have apprehended masked bandits who were drunkenly acting up in town -- but they weren't humans.
Neighbors had reported two raccoons that they thought were rabid to police, but it turned out they were just drunk on fermented crabapples, the Milton Police Department wrote on its Facebook page.

Hillary is going to want some of those crabapples.
Wait’ll the bears catch wind of it. Won’t be a safe place for a pic-a-nic basket to hide anywhere.
Let tell you, watching a drunk raccoon trying to get over a log that he could have just walked around, kept my cousin and I laughing for about an hour.
I used that excuse once. “Officer, I’m not drunk, I’ve got rabies....”
If they show up at an AA meeting nobody will know the difference. Can’t imagine their rotten crab apple breath. Besides, who got the short straw and forced a breath analyzer into a raccoon mouth?
Can’t beat a crabapple for a good high.
What does a Raccoon’s hangover feel like?
It must be nasty, just look at the guy's poor wife... she has two black eyes!
‘Rabid’ Racoons Turn out to be Drunk on Fermented Crabapples.
Wonder were they celebrating the election? Drunk? Probably Dems.
We have bushes that produces a bunch of cute but super tough and nasty tasting fruit that look like crabapples every year. The racoons, squirrels deer and our dog will not touch them. They smell OK so we had some of them in a bowl for decoration. When we got tired of looking at them, I tried to put them down the garbage disposal, but they were like little super balls and would not grind up and just made a terrible racket. I eventually had to fish them all back out of the garbage disposal with my hand. Super weird??? Up until then I thought that our garbage disposal would grind up just about anything.
We have quite a few primitive apple trees on our place. They make excellent apple sauce. And, yes, we have drunken raccoons, drunken skunks, drunken wild turkeys, drunken squirrels, drunken ravens, and all the rest of it.
Fortunately our dogs haven’t picked up the habit.
We have squirrels drunk on fermented acorns.
Rotten bananas keep a skunk friendly.
Every year when we would cut silage was a fun time.
We would run over the corn in the bunker with a tractor to pack it down.
What eventually oozed out were natural corn squeezings.
Every dog, deer, turkey, cow, skunk, possum and bird in the area would get blind drunk and stay that way until the brew dried up. Two or three weeks.
Funny, never saw one of the farms cats imbibing.
Try a drunk bird.
Funniest thing ever was watching drunk birds trying to fly away from the annual Critter Bar on the farm.
