Brown bear cub high on mad honey rescued in Turkey, According to the authorities in Turkey, park guards discovered a bear cub that appeared disoriented and had consumed a psychedelic variety of honey. The young brown bear was reportedly high on “crazy honey” when it was found lying on the brush-filled ground of a national park in Düzce, Turkey on August 11, according to Reuters.
According to photographs published on Twitter by Turkey’s Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, the bear appeared confused and sat in strange positions during its ordeal. It appeared to be partially slouched over. According to footage obtained from the ministry, park rangers loaded the bear into the back of their pickup vehicle, where she appeared to be disoriented as she wobbled around and sat stretched out stunned. According to the ministry, the bear appeared to be “exhausted” after devouring such a significant quantity of honey.
According to ZME Science, “mad honey,” also referred to as “deli bal” in Turkish, is a form of honey that derives from certain types of rhododendron blossoms. “Mad honey” is also known as “mad honey.” Grayanotoxin is a neurotoxin that, when taken, has the effect of a drug and can be found in the nectar of these flowers.
According to the source, consuming even a small amount of “crazy honey” might lead to hallucinations as well as a heightened state of consciousness. According to ZME Science, consuming excessive amounts of honey can result in a variety of adverse health effects, including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and loss of consciousness. According to an article from The Guardian, beekeepers in Turkey’s Kackar highlands produce “crazy honey” in very limited numbers. According to the news source, each year hospitals in Turkey treat dozens of patients who have been poisoned by “crazy honey.”
According to the statement made by the Ministry, the bear cub was taken to a veterinarian by park rangers, where she was treated for her injuries. In addition, they gave her the name “Balkiz.” According to a tweet from the ministry, she is in good health and will be returned to the wild as soon as it is safe to do so. Düzce is located approximately 210 kilometers (130 miles) east of Istanbul.
