A disoriented brown bear cub, believed to have become intoxicated after eating an excessive amount of “crazy honey”, was rescued by national parks teams in Turkey’s northwest Duzce province on Thursday. .
Footage showed the bear swaying and whimpering as it sat on its back in the back of a pickup truck after people rescued the visibly weakened animal from the forest.
Crazy honey, or “deli bal” in Turkish, is a type of rhododendron honey that can have hallucinogenic effects.
The bear was taken to a vet, where he was receiving treatment and is likely to be released into the wild in the coming days, local officials said, adding that he was in good condition.
The Ministry of Agriculture asked Turks on Twitter to come up with a name for the bear.
