BERLIN — A German badger got so drunk on over-ripe cherries it had eaten from a nearby tree, it staggered into the middle of a road and refused to budge, police said on Wednesday.
A motorist called police near the central town of Goslar to report a dead badger on a road — only for officers to turn up and discover the animal alive and well, but drunk.
Officers eventually chased it from the road with a broom.
Well-equipped police cars should always carry brooms in case they run into any drunk badgers. /Gary
