A “drunk” squirrel caused more than $700 in damage to a private members’ club in Britain.
The secretary of the Honeybourne Railway Club in Worchestershire originally thought a person had broken in.
The bar was a mess of smashed bottles and flowing beer.
But then Sam Boulter, 62, spotted the culprit: a squirrel staggering out from behind a box of potato chips.
“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 told BBC.
“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.”
Boulter claims to have never seen a drunk squirrel before. He eventually caught the sloshy squirrel in waste paper basket and released him outside.
“He was sozzled and looked a bit worse for wear, shall we say.”
