This’ll help you feel better about your last bender: CBS News reports that a squirrel in Worcestershire, in England’s West Midlands, broke into a pub and ran wild across the beer taps, littering the saloon with money, smashed bottles, and an entire barrel of spilled ale.
“He must have flung himself on the handle and he must have drank some as he was staggering around all over the place,” Sam Boulter, the bar owner, quoted in the local Western Daily Press. In all, the wasted rodent caused an estimated £300 ($425) in damage.
“I’ve never seen a drunk squirrel before,” the publican told the BBC. “He was sozzled and looked a bit worse for wear.” Eventually Boulter trapped the soused squirrel in a wastebasket and tossed him out a window. “It’s safe to say he is now barred from the club for life,” Boulter quipped.
