A PERTH man has claimed he bit into a slider on Australia Day at a city pub and ended up sinking his teeth into a mouse.
Bruce Blackburn alleges he was eating at the Civic Hotel in Inglewood when he made the sickening find.
“I ordered three sliders and chips – just a small burger as they are,” Mr Blackburn told 9 News Perth.
“I took a couple of bites of the first one and it was fine. And then the third one I couldn’t actually bite it.
“And I realised there was a fully-fledged hairy mouse in the meat patty.
“My reaction was to drop it straight away and feel sick, to be honest.”
The claims about the mouse-slider originally surfaced on Facebook on Friday and Mr Blackburn alleges the mouse was about the third of the size of a patty.
He told 9 News Perth that the pub had refunded his money but not given him an apology.
