Murder Most Fowl

English: Helmeted Guineafowl in Injasuthi, Dra...

The victim: a Helmeted Guineafowl (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

In a world filled with violence, it seems even birds have to watch their backs.

Two law students from the University of California at Berkeley were arrested last Friday outside the Flamingo Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Surveillance video caught Eric Cuellar and Justin Teixeira chasing a 14-year-old helmeted guineafowl into a wooded area. When they emerged, they were laughing and tossing around the bird’s decapitated body and head.

The guineafowl was part of the Flamingo’s Wildlife Habitat.

Currently, the men are being held on suspicion of conspiracy and the malicious killing of wildlife. And though their motive is unknown, I imagine they were simply being foolish or perhaps were drunk when they committed this heinous crime.

Or perhaps they just thought that what happened in Vegas would stay in Vegas. Too bad that didn’t work out, huh? Bunch of bird-killing idiots…

  1. Evil morons. Can’t find something more fun to do in Vegas?? Seriously?? Ugh. Some people really suck.

  2. Oh my god! That is incredibly horrible. I would put surveillance on their ass. If you can kill a bird (and then play with it’s dead body) that easy what do they do to humans?

    • When it comes to serial killers, this kind of behavior usually manifests in childhood. Not sure what the deal is with these idiots…

      • Maybe not serial killers, just a general respect for other people and animals, that is clearly missing.

  3. Public punishment & humiliation would be the best way to handle this sort of thing.Tie them both to a tree,facing it.Haul down their pants and paddle until bright red.Use wide boat paddle & don’t be afraid to lay it on.

  4. I get really angry at monsters who hurt “and/or” kill animals,and that was a beautiful bird & there was no excuse for what they did.They should be severely punished.I would recommend the same for anyone who did such a terrible thing,so watch it gnostic,if you hurt critters I’ll come after you with a paddle…..Smiley.

  5. I know,that’s why I like you,you’re one of the good guys.Wish you’d move to Canada.We need all the good people we can get.Right now I think we’re outnumbered.Too many nastys in the world.

  6. Think about it again.We need good people like you.It isn’t perfect here,there’s bad people everywhere but crime is less here than down there and most people are pretty good.
