Mouse in burger: #Perth man claims he found a rodent in a slider served by the Civic Hotel

Bruce Blackburn claims he bit into a burger and found a dead mouse.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.
