The Cheddar Valley Gazette reported that Star the duck visited the Old Courthouse Inn in Devon with his handler, Barrie Hayman. He then returned home, where he got into a brawl with Hayman’s dog, Maggie, and ended up with a split beak.

Hayman said Star “pushed his luck too far.”

"He gave [Maggie] a stare, then promptly stood on her back,” Hayman said. “It was not pretty and not nice.”

Star is reportedly on the wagon now.
