[Ed. – Wild animals seem to interact with beer an awful lot over in the Eastern hemisphere.]
A female badger is recovering at a Polish animal shelter, two days after the party animal was found passed out on a beach having had too much to drink.
“Oh, youth. Oh, summer holidays,” animal shelter Dzika Ostoja joked on Wednesday in a Facebook post, detailing Wandzia the badger’s plight in the Baltic seaside resort town of Rewal.
“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.”
The badger is believed to have stolen the booze from fellow beachgoers, before removing the beer caps with her teeth.
The black and white omnivore was unconscious for two days, the shelter’s manager, Marzena Bialowolska, told AFP, adding that the badger had partially recovered but was still unable to sit up.
