A drunk raccoon stumbled around a Christmas market in Germany on Saturday, according to police, who said the furry creature tripped around until it eventually fell asleep — before it was shot by a local hunter.
Videos that circulated of the trash panda reportedly showed it "wandering around, playing with a woman's shoes and then taking a rest on some steps in front of a building."
The raccoon was later shot by a hunter, according to the German news outlet.
It was originally reported that firefighters transported the animal to a shelter. A similar situation — involving drunk hedgehogs who came across some bottles of alcohol eggnog in the trash — reportedly happened in 2018. Those animals were taken in by a zoo.
