Mouse Chewing Contest

Freakish things and people are plentiful--all over the world.

Pub 'sorry' for mouse-chewing contest

A Brisbane pub has apologised for staging a mice-chewing contest.

The Exchange Hotel staged the contest in which live mice were chewed up and spat out by contestants to try to win a holiday.

The owners of the pub said they were unaware of the "appalling incident", reports the Herald Sun.

The incident outraged the RSPCA which wants to prosecute the two men involved for animal cruelty.

RSPCA chief inspector Byron Hall said those involved faced fines of up to $75,000 and two years in prison.

The Exchange Hotel issued a statement condemning the incident and promising an end to Jackass-style competitions.

"We are embarrassed this incident occurred at our hotel," said the hotel's senior manager Scott Agnew.

"The offensive part of the promotion was conducted without the knowledge of our senior management and after this incident was brought to our attention we immediately made changes to stop such unacceptable behaviour."
