A deer in Weihai, which is located in China’s Shandong province, seems to have developed a drinking problem.
The deer in question has acquired a taste for beer and will no longer drink water (although it will settle for wine if there is a beer shortage). According to Zhang Xiangxi, a waitress at a resort in Weihai where the deer hangs out, this all started last November:
“I saw a bottle of beer was still half full so I playfully passed it to the deer. Unexpectedly, it bit the bottle … and drank all the beer in one shot… To begin with, it was half a bottle but now it is several big bottles in a row. Her daily feed is around two bottles. I don’t know what her maximum appetite is, though we once tried giving her four bottles and she drank them all.”
And the rest is hazy history.
I don’t know if giving beer to a deer counts as abuse, but a quick internet search reveals that our deer friend isn’t the only animal that’s had a little too much to drink. Check these out:
