CASTRO VALLEY, Calif. (AP) – It seemed like luck had run out for Lucky the rabbit. Strapped to a powerful explosive with a lit fuse, she was tossed into a lake. But Lucky lived up to her name. The explosive didn’t blow up, and the rabbit was pulled out of the water.
Lucky is, indeed, lucky.
Now Lucky’s college-bound owner and his friend face misdemeanor charges of animal cruelty after photos of the July 13 incident surfaced on the Internet.
What kind of dumbass would actually post these photos over the Internet?
Nick Sigmon, 18, and Paul Collins, 20, are accused of taping an illegal M-1000 – a large firecracker equivalent to a quarter stick of dynamite – to the rabbit and throwing her into Lake Don Castro.
Sigmon said he fished Lucky out of the water to save her from drowning, but that didn’t impress Alameda County prosecutors, who charged the two Castro Valley lifeguards on Wednesday. Two other men who were present during the incident may also face charges.
So, blowing up the bunny is OK. But drowning the bunny is not OK. What’s missing here? Oh, right…a fucking brain.
“I think that a lot of people are judging us without knowing us at all,” Sigmon told the San Francisco Chronicle. But asked why he fitted Lucky with the explosive, he said, “Um, that’s a real tough question to answer.”
Tough? Let’s shove a stick of dynomite up his ass and see if he has any answers. Anyone game?
Lucky is recovering at a foster owner’s home, where she’s snacking hay pellets and doing well, Williams said.
DAMN! Can an almost blown up bunny get some carrots, please!
