Top 12 drunken animal stories

Sloshed squirrel

boozy-beats

Last July, a cheeky squirrel made the national news after breaking into a private members’ club, drinking from its beer tap and causing hundreds of pounds worth of damage.

When the secretary of the Honeybourne Railway Club in Worcestershire arrived to open up the venue, he first feared that a person had broken into the premises, such was the damage.

Describing the scene Sam Boulter told the BBC that the floor was covered in beer, money, smashed bottles and glasses.

Fearing the worst, Boulter was perhaps relieved to spot a squirrel “staggering around”, emerging from behind a box of crisps.

“He had obviously run across the bar’s pumps and managed to turn on the Caffrey’s tap”, said Boulter.

“He must have flung himself on the handle and drank some as he was staggering around all over the place and moving a bit slowly. I’ve never seen a drunk squirrel before. He was sozzled and looked a bit worse for wear, shall we say”.

Mr Boulter said the rampaging squirrel, which was eventually caught and released out of a window, had cost the club around £300.
