Thanks to Bob Carleo, we’ve found our mascot. Yes it’s a Honey Badger, but not just any Honey Badger.
This one was caught stealing beers from a beach in Poland yesterday…and drinking them.
Someone needs to go to Poland and get this animal.
Here’s the article.

“Badger recovering in shelter after being found drunk on Polish beach”
Party animal discovered surrounded by seven empty beer bottles, along with two more hidden in bushes, believed to have been stolen from beachgoers
Wandzia, a female badger, is recovering at a Polish animal shelter, two days after the party animal was found passed out on a beach having had too much to drink.
“Oh, youth. Oh, summer holidays,” animal shelter Dzika Ostoja joked on Wednesday in a Facebook post, detailing Wandzia the badger’s plight in the Baltic seaside resort town of Rewal.
“We found Wandzia drunk, surrounded by seven [empty beer] bottles. There were two more in the bushes, so it’s possible Wandzia began partying there. Haha.”
The badger is believed to have stolen the booze from fellow beachgoers, before removing the beer caps with her teeth.
The black and white omnivore was unconscious for two days, the shelter’s manager, Marzena Bialowolska, told AFP, adding that the badger had partially recovered but was still unable to sit up.
“She’s been sleeping, drinking water and eating chick meat,” said Bialowolska. If all goes well, Wandzia will be released back into the wild by the end of the week.
Wandzia is not the first of her kind to have experimented with alcohol. In 2009, German police were called to clear a road of a badger that was “drunk as a skunk” from gorging itself on over-ripe, fermented cherries.
Wandzia is not the only badger to like a tipple. Teka was caught supping from a pint in Gloucestershire.
Recap, on why we need a Poland Road trip, asap.
-Loves the Beach.
-Uses teeth to open beers.
-She’s a naughty girl (likes to steal).
Flights to Warsaw go daily from Boston. Who’s in.
