Bow-Tie-Wearing Duck Enters Bar, Downs Beer, Brawls With Dog
A drunken duck wearing a bow tie has sworn off booze after a pub fight with a dog, and yes this is true, which means it has to be England. Star is a pet duck of local renown in Chulmleigh, Devon, because he's fond of pub crawling with his owner, Barrie Hayman. Star even has his own stool at his favorite pub, The Old Courthouse Inn.
That's where Star picked a fight with Hayman's other pet, a dog named Meggie. The tipsy duck provoked Meggie, according to reports, and a brawl ensued. Star sustained injuries to his beak, reports the Cheddar Valley Gazette.

"He had to be rushed to the vets and go under anesthetic, 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."
But the duck has sworn off booze, says Hayman. My favorite graph:
Barrie, 69, says that the dog tired of the duck's drunken antics and Star finally ''pushed his luck too far''.
