Angry patrons toss dead animals into Pa. bar

Business owners in western Pennsylvania should be wary of upsetting their customers.

In Brookville, two angry would-be patrons threw a dead groundhog and dead grouse into a bar that refused to serve them over the weekend, according to news reports.

Brookville police Chief Ken Dworek told the Associated Press that the suspects are an underage man who was refused service and another who was turned away from the bar due to alcohol issues.

The Dubois Courier Express reports that the two threw a dead groundhog into Bill's Bar around 5 p.m. Sunday and fled. They returned a few hours later and tossed a dead grouse inside.

The police chief told the AP that it's fairly common for disgruntled Brookville residents to use dead animals in such a manner, such as, "a guy will get in an argument and put a dead squirrel on his girlfriend's doorknob."
