I found another horror story about binge drinking in Spiegel Online:
German police in the south western city of Pforzheim picked up a bird so drunk and near traffic that there was a real health and safety risk. The bird, a paralytic owl that appeared to have drunk too much Schnapps from two discarded bottles, was taken into custody but was due for release when it had sobered up. A police spokesman said, "We didn't breathalyse it but there were two little bottles of Schnapps in the immediate vicinity."
A suitable job for the Flying Squad, I suppose.
