It's me again. I know we've had our differences, but I think I've found some common ground. So please put your clothes back on, lay off trying to guilt me into being a vegan for now, and do everything in your power to see to it that this psychopath goes to prison:
This is a scene from a Colombian professional soccer league game last weekend, between Deportivo Pereira and Atlético Junior (the home team in Barranquilla). The owl, which lived on the roof of the stadium and was considered a mascot of Junior, had alighted on the field and was accidentally hit by a ball in play.
Angered at the interference, Pereira player Luis Moreno went back and kicked the bird — causing injuries that later proved fatal.
Moreno was immediately confronted by angry opposing players. He left the game under heavy guard and was handed a two-game suspension by the league, as well as a $560 fine for animal abuse.
