A badger in Germany got so drunk on over-ripe cherries it staggered into the middle of a road and refused to budge, police said.
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.
Police discovered the nocturnal beast had eaten cherries from a nearby tree which had turned to alcohol and given the badger diarrhoea.
Having failed to scare the animal away, officers eventually chased it from the road with a broom.
