A wild owl apparently had a wild time in southern Germany.

An owl that had evidently drunk too much Schnapps from two discarded bottles was so inebriated that it got picked up by police. The bird will be released once it has sobered up.

German police said on Tuesday they had discovered a paralytic owl that appeared to have drunk too much Schnapps from two discarded bottles.

"A woman walking her dog alerted the police after seeing the bird sitting by the side of the road oblivious to passing traffic," Frank Otruba, spokesman for the police in the southwestern city of Pforzheim, told SPIEGEL ONLINE.

The Brown Owl didn't appear to be injured and officers quickly concluded that it had had one too many. One of its eyelids was drooping, adding to the general impression of inebriation.

"It wasn't staggering around and we didn't breathalyze it but there were two little bottles of Schapps in the immediate vicinity," said Otruba. "We took it to a local bird expert who has treated alcoholized birds before and she has been giving it lots of water."

The bird will be released once it has sobered up, police said.

i actually laughed out loud when i read this









my only hope is that they ticket it with a FUI before they let it go, if it does it again it needs it's wings clipped, especially since discarding half full bottles of alcohol and drunk birds is a big problem over there

Even though I've never been to Europe (except for being born in Spain), I'm a proud American so I naturally just assume that everywhere else sucks. Although, I hear really good things about Australia.
