A beer-drinking billy goat stops off for a pint at the 17th Century pub, the Clinton Arms in Frithelstock near Torrington in North Devon. Pets welcome, though many of us will occasionally bring our dogs along to our local it is not a common sight for a goat to be having a cheeky pint. Some animals such as monkeys, elephants and bears will eat fermenting fruits or steal alcoholic beverages, although neither the intent nor the effects are known.

Many pubs now ban animals from their establishments and alcohol is not recommended for pets.
