Other animals can get drunk and stupid, too

I always thought that humans were the only animals stupid enough to get drunk and pull off stupid Jackass-like moves. Apparently elephants can, too:

Four wild elephants drunk on rice beer have been electrocuted in the north-east Indian state of Meghalaya, wildlife officials report.
Long story short, the elephants started to acquire a taste for rice beer that's produced in some India villages. They went on a rampage, drank a bunch, ran into a telephone pole, electrocuted themselves.

Are pachyderms eligible for Darwin Awards? I wouldn't think the awards are human-specific, considering Darwin's theory of evolution was in regards to all species.

Thanks to Barney for the tip.
