New pub meals in Australia! - mice and cups of maggots...

 http://smh.com.au/articles/...

A man who bit off the tail of a live mouse in a Brisbane pub competition was so drunk he was in shock when later told what he'd done, a court was told.

Apprentice chef Tony McGee, 22, pleaded guilty to being cruel to an animal at a hearing in Brisbane Magistrates Court and was fined $750.

Defence lawyer Ben Power said McGee had also set off a mouse trap with his tongue, eaten a bird seed cup full of maggots, sucked up three chewed up chillies through a straw, drank a pint of anchovies and skolled a pint of mouthwash.

The gruesome dares were part of a competition at the Exchange Hotel in inner-city Brisbane on April 14 which was modelled on the US television program Jackass.

Mr Power said the antics were akin to a military-style initiation rite.

He said McGee was given a $100 drinking voucher from the organisers beforehand and had downed bourbon and full-strength beer for six hours.

"He would like to stress that he is very sorry about what has occurred," Mr Power said.

The court was told McGee had no recollection of chewing on the mouse, only that he remembered having a mouse "in his possession" at some point.

Mr Power said when friends the next day told McGee about his antics he cringed and said: "I didn't do that."

McGee was one of four men charged after hotel patrons lodged a complaint with the RSPCA.

The organiser, Robbie Gundelach, 21, copped a $1,250 fine and was ordered to pay $300 in court costs.

The RSPCA lodged an appeal in Brisbane's District Court over the leniency of the sentence, insisting it was "manifestly inadequate" after it called for a $5,000 fine.

A third man who handed the mice to the contestants was previously fined $1,000.

Advertising worker Chris Stafford, 25, told the court through his lawyer that he had learnt his lesson after helping Gundelach run the event.

The competition runner-up, Shane Gill, left court without being dealt with and is set to face charges in a fortnight.

When asked outside court if he had any advice for competitors, Gill said: "Don't eat mice."
