Echidna breaks into store, smashes stuff and gets drunk before passing out
It happened in Australia, didn't it?
An echidna, a small egg-laying mammal that vaguely looks like a hedgehog (but apparently isn't), recently went rogue in Australia. It broke into the a Bottle O store, smashed some of the bottles - and presumably drank some of the content - before passing out.
Brian Watson-Bell, who works at the store in question, told ABC that he thought “there had to be a critter in here somewhere – there was just too much damage for a rat.”
“He had gone through a couple of bottles of vodka and a bottle of chocolate Baileys, he was sleeping it off for sure,” Watson-Bell joked. “I think if he had gone for a crawl he would have been stumbling a bit, I don’t think he was fit to drive.”
The “culprit” was later escorted away from the store by a volunteer from WIRES Wildlife Rescue charity and freed shortly after.
