IT was a case of “slot’s up doc?” for this pub-loving rabbit, who has become addicted to the fruit machine at a Worcestershire pub.

Daisy the rabbit – who is actually a male – even enjoys drinking cider while having a cheeky flutter at the Prince of Wales in Malvern.

Ian Randall, landlord at the Newtown road pub, moved Daisy into the bar two weeks ago to escape the big freeze.

Mr Randall said his bunny hasn’t bugged the locals by hogging the fruit machine and most drinkers have been amazed by his bizarre behaviour.

The 29-year-old said: “We were surprised at the reaction of our locals when we brought him inside from the cold – most of them took to him straight away.

“He’s quite an inquisitive rabbit, and he keeps on looking at the flashing lights and reaching up to have a go. The locals have to keep a careful watch on where they stand when they are having a flutter, because Daisy is usually right behind them waiting to have a go himself.”

Mr Randall adopted Daisy from friends when they moved away from the area.

“However, there is a handful of drinkers here who would probably rather put him into a stew though,” Mr Randall said.

As well as trying his luck on the fruit machine Daisy has also been getting fruity with Mr Randall’s sons’ toy rabbit.
