WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS GUY???
Denver man allegedly rips head off hotel duck
St. Paul, Minn. – A 26-year-old Denver businessman was in custody Sunday for allegedly ripping the head off a live, tame duck that resided in a hotel lobby’s ornamental pond.
According to a police report, Scott D. Clark, a guest at the Embassy Suites Hotel in St. Paul, cornered the duck early Saturday, grabbed the bird and “ripped its head from its body” while a hotel security guard and others watched. Clark then turned to onlookers and said: “I’m hungry. I’m gonna eat it,” St. Paul police Sgt. John Wuorinen said, citing the police report.
“He was allegedly drunk,” Wuorinen said.
Clark was detained by hotel security guards until police came to arrest him. He remained in jail Sunday on suspicion of felony animal cruelty and was scheduled to appear in court today to be charged.
A phone message left for Clark at the jail was not immediately returned Sunday. He could face up to two years in jail and a $5,000 fine, said Tim Shields, general counsel with the Minnesota Federated Humane Societies.
On a personal note I hope he rots in the slammer
