Two Hamsters, One Cup

Posted By Kate Scarlett Mitchell On Apr 23, 2010 @ 8:52 pm In News | Comments Disabled

We’re not quite sure how to break this to you guys, so we’ll just lay it on you: UC Davis students Henry Nguyen and Josue Melendez are facing charges [1] for abusing hamsters. In addition to battery and torture via cigarette lighter, the criminal report notes that the suspects supposedly struck the rodent(s) in question with a ruler, “flung it across the room, and put the animal in a cup and lit the bottom of the cup on fire.”

The boys (allegedly) videotaped the whole ordeal and posted it on Facebook [2].

So much for our distilled, utopian vision of Davis as a pastoral land of kind aspiring vets and sheep midwives enjoying harmonious residence together in barnyard co-ops.
