Man ‘finds dead rat in Red Bull can after he took sip and felt something hit his lip’

Not everyone was convinced by the clip and thought the mouse had managed to get inside after the drink was opened.

A horrified man claims he found a dead mouse inside his can of Red Bull after taking a sip and feeling something hit his lip.

Josh Henley said he bought the energy drink on Sunday night when he discovered the rodent inside.

He filmed himself cutting open the can to reveal the creature and after posting the video on his Facebook page it went viral.

Josh, from Arkansas, wrote: “Well guys I think Red Bull just lost my business!!!

“Bought a Red Bull last night and well I happen to look in it was bout to spit sunflower seeds and I see a damn mouse people check your stuff!!!”

In the clip, Josh can be heard saying “I drank a Red Bull last night and, you can’t see it, but apparently I shouldn’t have got a Red Bull because there is a mouse in there.”

He then starts cutting the can with a pair of scissors before reaching for a knife.

He continues: “I don’t know if it’s the factory or what… but this is crazy because I drink Red Bull all the time and I think I’m just going to quit.”

Slicing the can in half the camera then zooms in and a lifeless mouse can be seen lying at the bottom.

Josh, who works at a pawn shop, says: “Look at this, there’s a dead rat – check your Red Bulls before you drink them.”

Since the video was posted online it has received more than 34,000 shares.

But not everyone thinks the video is legitimate.

Joshua Nightingale commented: “You drank it last night, most likely that mouse got in after you drank it and went to sleep. Wouldn’t you have noticed it last night after or while you were drinking it?”

Another comment said: “It obviously went in after you drank it.

Others said the mouse would have been able to squeeze its body through the small hole to get into the can once it smelt the sweet scent of the drink, and would not have been able to get back out again.

A spokesman for Red Bull said: “It is inconceivable that a particle – let alone anything like this – could pass through the process of world-class, modern beverage manufacture.”
