People can really be incredible jerks sometimes. What kind of pathetic loser needs to build his feeble ego by picking on these utterly adorable creatures? French tourists set one on fire, for chrissake. Some people just don't deserve to exist. I hope they throw the book at these morons.

Meatheads. Boofheads. Fatheads. Blockheads. The terms change but they all describe the same people. They go throw life with no consideration for anyone or anything other than themselves and they never engage their brain before acting. The same people that throw an animal in the water are the same people who do a burnout in a suburban street at 2am. I hate these people.

 

 

 

And the guy that set a quokka on fire? That's straight up psychopathic.

From another source: "Perth Now reported a duty lawyer, representing Hames, told the court a conviction could impact his ability to travel overseas for work."

 

Oh, duh! He didn't think about this before being an idiot, did he?

Sigh.

 

The same applies to the tourists' actions even if the quokka were not adorable.

 @Rikkitic, I don't ofter find myself agreeing with you but....

 

 

 

“He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.”

 

Immanuel Kant

 

@Hammerer, beauty it in the eye of the beholder, and you are correct.

Reports suggest a maximum sentence of $50k or 5 years imprisonment. I'll laugh my head off of he gets sentenced to 12 months inside (out after 3 on parole) which would be enough to trigger deport proceedings. Can't see it happening though.
