Crazed drunk squirrel trashes club

We all remember the Australian pig that drank 18 pints then had a fight with a cow.

Sadly, while he is no longer with us, news reaches us of a successor to his hallowed position as our favourite drunken animal.

A Worcestershire squirrel got drunk and went on the rampage, causing hundreds of pounds worth of damage in a private members' club recently.

The secretary of Honeybourne Railways Club, 62-year-old Sam Boulter, described entering the premises, near Evesham, in what looked like an apparent break-in. Upon reaching the main room, he saw a squirrel 'staggering around' after coming from behind a box of crisps.

He said: "There were bottles scattered around, money scattered around, and he had obviously run across the bar's pumps and managed to turn on the Caffrey's tap. He must have flung himself on the handle and drunk 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."

Our hero was eventually caught in a waste paper bin and released back to freedom out a window.

A famous video of a drunk squirrel did the rounds in 2006, after it inadvertently ate fermented pumpkins; so for an idea of what the Worcester squirrel looked like, have a watch below. Another, similarly adventurous squirrel who liked a drink can be seen below that - perhaps our guy was related to one of these?
