High on hallucinogenic honey, disoriented bear cub is rescued in northwestern Türkiye

South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “High on hallucinogenic honey, disoriented bear cub is rescued in northwestern Türkiye” – below is their description.

An intoxicated bear cub was found in northwestern Türkiye. She appeared to have gotten high off “mad honey”, a type of rhododendron honey that can have hallucinogenic effects. Eating too much of it can reduce blood pressure to potentially dangerous levels and induce nausea, fainting, seizures, arrhythmia and, in rare cases, death.
