Badger sleeps off two-day hangover after apparently stealing seven bottles of beer from beachgoers
A badger who apparently pilfered seven bottles of beer from partygoers was found passed out and drunk by animal rescue workers.
The female badger – who was recovering at a Polish animal shelter yesterday – was unconscious for two days after consuming too much drink.
The badger is believed to have stolen the booze from beachgoers at the Baltic seaside town of Rewal, before removing the beer caps with her teeth.
"We found Wandzia drunk, surrounded by seven (empty beer) bottles. There were two more in the bushes, so it's possible Wandzia began partying there. Haha," animal shelter Dzika Ostoja said on Facebook.
Marzena Bialowolska, head of the shelter, said the badger had partly recovered but was still unable to sit up.
"Oh, youth. Oh, summer holidays," the shelter joked on Facebook.
"She's been sleeping, drinking (water) and eating chick meat," said Ms Bialowolska.
The shelter is planning on releasing the badger back into the wild by the end of the week.
