After receiving a call from a concerned hiker last week, German police responded to find a naked man wandering in the woods in the town of Traunstein. It turns out he was a Franciscan monk who was tripping on some bad berries. The monk had initially set out with his bike and a tent, planning to spend a few quiet days in the countryside. His plans were derailed after he accidentally ate some toxic fruit, started to hallucinate, and wandered away from his tent, unable to find his way back. The monk declined help from the hiker, who then reported the incident to authorities. The police found the nude Franciscan and brought him to a nearby hospital. As The Local reports, “It remains a mystery how he came to be naked.”
