Police Brutality Apparently Extends To The Animal Kingdom… Cops Could Lose Their Jobs Over Killing Of Helpless Groundhog
This is becoming pretty par for the course…
Police in America took a break from killing unarmed black people and elderly volunteers last week when they decided to kill a groundhog during a golf tournament in upstate New York last weekend.
While some may argue they were exterminating a pest, it's actually against Frear Park Golf Course rules to kill the animals since they do not bother humans. And it's the way they mistreated the animal before killing it that has the department investigating…
According to eyewitnesses, Officer Tyler Sammon of Troy apparently chased the rodent on foot until the animal could no longer run. That's when he decided to get back into the cart and drive over the helpless animal.
Rensselaer Police Chief Rick Fusco called the killing "really bothersome."
Officer Mike Spath, Tyler's passenger in the cart, did not directly harm the creature, but we guess he's being viewed as an accessory. Both officers are now on paid administrative leave — the exact same punishment as the men who killed Alton Sterling and Mary Knowlton. Ugh…
Ch-ch-check out local news coverage of the disturbing incident (below)!!!
Even though he's named after one, Tyga SUCKS at keeping a tiger!
In case you missed it, in 2014, the rapper almost faced criminal charges for possessing an exotic animal. Ultimately, no charges were filed, and the animal was sent to a shelter.
Does the Rack City artist still care for the feline?! It turns out…
According to Lions, Tigers & Bears — a non-profit rescue facility — the cat (now known as Maverick) is completely taken care of WITHOUT any help from Kylie Jenner's boyfriend!
Founder and director Bobbi Brink says feeding Maverick costs more than $10K a year. This isn't even including vet costs and flea control. Without Tyga's help, the cat must depend on public donations to survive.
