A badly behaved squirrel has been found drunk in a bar having caused around three hundreds pounds worth of damage.

He broke into the Honeybourne Railway Club and helped himself to beer and crisps and after the cheeky rodent couldn’t find his way out he went on a drunken rampage.

When Sam Boulter, the secretary of the club in Worcestershire first walked in and saw the state of the room he thought that they’d been the victim of a burglary. It wasn’t until he saw the squirrel staggering around from the back of a box of crisps that he realised how the damage had been caused.

The floor was covered in beer and glasses and bottles smashed, Mr Boulter said:

“When I opened the door it was absolutely ransacked. At first I thought we’d been burgled but I realised it was all still locked up and that’s when we saw the squirrel.

“I’d never seen anything like it before – he had ran around the shelves and across the bar.

“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 he must have 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 looked a bit worse for wear.”

The squirrel was eventually caught in a waste paper basket and released out of the window. I hope it’s learnt its lesson and doesn’t come back for a follow up session.
