Boris, a Russian miniature pig, was taken to his local veterinary clinic after taking several ecstasy pills; the incident has allegedly prompted a police investigation into the matter, Baza news reported on its Telegram channel.
According to the report, the incident took place in Moscow. Boris’ owner, whose name hasn't been disclosed, wrote to the miniature pig's breeder, saying that her pet had swallowed six pills, which it had allegedly found on the street. Boris was rushed to a clinic, where vets confirmed the presence of MDMA in its blood. The animal was rescued and feels fine now, the report says.
While Boris is currently in a good state, the effect of such a psychoactive drug on animals is far from clear. According to research by American biologists conducted several years ago, such creatures as octopuses, become more socially active and even touchy with those of their own species after taking ecstasy – similar to the effect this drug has on humans.
