In Germany, police arrested a paralytic owl that got drunk on schnapps. A police spokesman said the owl wasn’t acting disorderly, but its eyelid was drooping, and “there were two little bottles of Schapps in the immediate vicinity.”

Did you know that arresting animals seems to be an emerging trend? In Saudi Arabia, police apprehended a spy vulture. A Saudi newspaper reported that the bird “had a ‘foul odor coming out of its mouth–proof of a Zionist plot.’” And in Colombia, police arrested a drug-smuggling pigeon.

In reading the articles, it seems that the animals haven’t really been “arrested,” just briefly held in custody. Which is good for them, because finding a lawyer who understands avian languages is probably very hard.
