The exotic pets belonged to 55-year-old Jerald Reiter, who had taken them for a ride in his pickup truck.
Reiter claimed that the owners of the Doghouse Bar and Lounge, in Ankeny, Iowa, usually allowed him to bring the animals inside.
However, the bar was serving food on this particular occasion, forcing him to leave his unusual pets inside the truck where they were spotted by concerned passersby.
The jaunt ended in Reiter's arrest, after he blew a 0.148 blood alcohol level.
Ah, those crazy Iowans. Always game for a laugh...
