Charity will trace ‘mouse biter’
An animal welfare group has said it is hopeful of tracing a man who can be seen on an internet website biting the head off a live pet mouse.
About 2,000 people have viewed the incident on the YouTube site.
The incident is believed to have happened at a party in the Turf Lodge area of west Belfast.
“We’ve had a couple of leads which my staff will be running down today,” an Ulster Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals spokesman said.
Spokesman Stephen Philpott said: “If the USPCA in this instance can prove unnecessary suffering, which is the key phrase under the Welfare of Animal Act, we will certainly be taking it further.”
Mr Philpott said the organisation had already had a “great response” from the public after appealing for help to identify the man.
The two-minute video shows the man, referred to as Johnny, drinking from a can of beer before biting …
…and I’ll stop there because the description is too graphic and disturbing.
Hopefully the USPCA will find and then name and shame this “Johnny”.
