A University High School student has been charged with animal cruelty and trespassing after deputies say he sneaked onto school property and bit the head off of a live chicken that was on campus for a school event, deputies said.
Deputies said the incident happened Saturday night, when the student trespassed onto campus at 11 p.m. Saturday and entered the chicken coop. The chickens were on campus for a "Farm to Table" event held earlier that day, according to a Facebook post from the sheriff's department.
When a teacher arrived to campus Monday, she discovered a headless chicken in the parking lot, deputies said. The chicken's head was later found inside the chicken coop, according to the post.
Deputies said eggs had been thrown in the gym and against the gym doors.
The Volusia County resource deputy at University High School heard that students were bragging about a student biting the head off of a live chicken last weekend. The officer identified the student as a 17-year-old boy, according to the post.
The teenager was arrested on a felony animal cruelty charge and trespassing. He was released to his mother Tuesday and will have a court date Wednesday.
>animal cruelty for decapitating a chicken
>something regularly done to chickens when they're slaughtered
Guess his mistake was using his teeth to kill livestock he didn't own.
Why didn't they write a charge for destruction of property instead, it would be far more appropriate?
Good pic OP. The kid's defense should have been "Kids in school were bullying me relentlessly -- called me a geek -- so I showed them what a geek really was! What'd you expect me to do instead, punch them out like in the movies?" Instant get-out-of-jail-free and get-your-enemies-suspended card.
Animal cruelty is a bit much. If he decapitated the chicken, then it isn't really any different compared to chickens normally get killed for consumption.
Maybe if he clobbered it to death, then it would be reasonable.
