The animal world seems to be picking up some bad habits. Lately there’s been a rash of animals getting ‘pissed’ and causing havoc. Recently Fish and Wildlife officials found a bear passed out on the front lawn of Baker Lake Resort, in Washington State. The bear got ripped on 36 cans of beer he snagged from a camp. Not only does this bear like beer, but he’s a bit of a beer snob and only drinks the local brew! He had a choice of the local Rainier beer or Busch. Fish and Wildlife enforcement Sgt. Bill Heinck said he only tried one can of Busch and left the rest alone. Wildlife officials finally herded the bear off, but he showed back up the next day. They used a humane trap to capture it, baited with doughnuts, honey, and two cans of Rainier beer.
And across the pond according to a BBC report glasses, bottles and spilt beer covered the floor of the Honeybourne Railway Club in Hereford and Worcester after an intruder made its way into the bar, turned on a beer tap and helped itself to some free booze. Turns out the beer thief was a squirrel. Sam Boulter, the club’s secretary, said he noticed the bloke poking his head up from behind some crisp (chips in american) and observed the animal stumbling around after getting into the ale. The damage caused by the squirrel’s wild weekend is estimated at 300 pounds, roughly $466.
