Anna Raccoon today reports a story that should have all those alcohol awareness hand wringers rushing around in a tizzy.
A few years ago our lotal readers may remember, our own fatsally reported a case of anti social animal behaviour arising from a Swedish Elk’s binge drinking.
Alas these are not uncommon stories nor is animal alcoholism confined to Elks. Some years ago a similarly drunken Swedish elk was accused of causing the death of a woman. Animal lovers will be pleased to know Sweden’s politically correct Thought Police did not prosecute the creature because Sweden’s Elk equality regulations stipulate that animal had to be able to understand the charges against it and the poor beast had totally addled its brain with alcohol and could not understand a word of Swedish.
In Boggart Blog over the years we have reported squiffy squirrels, bladdered badgers, groggy goats, sozzled starlings, a pissed porker and many other drunken animals.
Somebody ought to introduce a twelve step programme to help our furry friends conquer their addiction.
