PETA Implores Nebraska AD For Justice In Grisly Raccoon Murder
It's been quite awhile since we've checked in with our old friends at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, but recently they scrambled their fighter jets and kissed their loved ones goodbye as they prepared for Operation Raccoon Justice.
It seems that on Dec. 3, Nebraska football defensive end Jack Gangwish was driving along a road north of campus when he spotted a raccoon. So he reacted just as you or I would -- he stopped his truck and tried to take a selfie with it.
The raccoon, not a fan of social media, bit him on the calf. And Gangwish then beat it to death with a wrench.
So yeah, Nebraska players are stupid -- probably just one or two DNA rungs above the ostrich. But that makes them easy to control, which is why coaches like them.
Anyway, PETA is pissed, and wants Nebraska AD Shawn Eichorst to punish Gangwish. Via the Lincoln Journal-Star:
On Wednesday, Gangwish said his wound was doing OK and declined further comment.
In her letter to Eichorst, PETA President Ingrid Newkirk said, “No animal deserves to be bludgeoned to death, and cruelty is not acceptable under the law. It's time for acts of cruelty to animals committed by players to be taken extremely seriously, and with violence in football culture now under the microscope, this is the time to address the issue.
Gangwish said that he killed the critter because he wanted to get it tested for rabies. May I suggest instead a series of painful rabies shots to the groin?
