    Pub 'sorry' for mouse-chewing contest

    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.
