An unlikely guest that arrived a local pub, was not only welcomed by the landlord and helped to his favourite pint by another guest - only its a duck.
The duck wearing a bow-tie, named Star, arrived at the Chulmleigh pub in Devon and was assisted unto a chair by handler Barrie Hayman as it sank its long beak ino a lagger-filed glass cup. But the duck caused a row and got injured when it got into a brawl, the HuffPost reports.
"The booze-loving bird, affectionately named Star, was enjoying a pint in The Old Courthouse Inn with his handler, Barrie Hayman, when Hayman's canine Meggie sparked a bar brawl.
"Star pushed his luck too far and Meggie snapped - splitting Star's bottom beak right down the middle," Hayman, 69, told the Cheddar Valley Gazette.
"He gave her a stare, then promptly stood on her back. It was not pretty and not nice. We were so scared we would lose Star.
"He had to be rushed to the vets and go under anaesthetic, which is always risky and could go either way with ducks and other small animals."
"Thankfully our Star is a tough cookie and it looks like he came out okay."
