Moron Pleads 'Not Guilty' To Eating Live Baby Rat

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Utah man who allegedly posted a video of himself eating a live baby rat to the Internet pleaded not guilty to aggravated animal abuse.

Andy Ray Harris, 31, pleaded not guilty Tuesday during a brief hearing before Judge Robert Adkins in 3rd District Court in Tooele and a pretrial conference was scheduled for July 19, the Salt Lake City Deseret News reported Wednesday."

Eating a live baby rat is a heinous crime, and the charge "aggravated animal abuse" simply doesn`t do it justice. Eating a live rat is bad enough, but posting the sickening deed online so that other idiots can follow his example is unconscionable behavior.

Harris is a moron, how can he plead "not guilty" when the video depicts him putting the live animal into his mouth and chewing it?

Harris should be sentenced to a few months in jail, as a society we simply can`t tolerate cruelty to animals.

Props to PETA for forwarding the video to the authorities.
