Stag parties might be renowned for their wild nature, but one drunken reveller almost landed himself in the doghouse after his recent antics.
The unnamed groom-to-be stunned punters at the Central Park Stadium greyhound track in Sittingbourne, Kent, by attempting to join in with the race, the Daily Mirror reports.
Dressed in a horse mask and seemingly a little the worse for wear, the man vaulted a safety barrier and proceeded to run alongside the dogs.
A spokesperson for the track said: "He was on a stag do, although most of the rest of his group had already left, and had a horse's head on."
While the man's behaviour is not to be recommended, a trip to the dogs could nevertheless prove the ideal outing for those looking to celebrate their final night of freedom.
Indeed, according to journalist Brigid Delaney, writing for the Sydney Morning Herald, an increasing number of stag parties are ditching traditional booze-fuelled bar crawls in favour of milder alternatives.
These include activities such as golf, paintballing or having a flutter on the horses.
