In the criminal justice system, sexually-based offenses committed by animals are considered especially heinous. "I'd say it's probably been playing, or it may be even a sexual sort of thing," Queensland police Detective Senior Constable Craig Gregory told the Associated Press earlier today (or yesterday or maybe even tomorrow, because Australia is a day behind or forward, we can never remember which) when they discovered the body of a woman who had apparently been suffocated by a young camel she was keeping as a pet. In fact, the "guilty" plea entered by dog-abusing Atlantic Falcons quarterback Michael Vick today seems to have touched off a worldwide animal revenge spree, for today, no human was safe! First, there was the news that men who hunt deer are at higher risk for heart attack. (Karma's a bitch!)
Then, in Serbia, a bear killed a drunk man, after apparently removing his clothes. Over in Finland, another bear bit hard into a man who was trying to shoot it. A Florida college student was bit by a shark; a rabid bat being treated an animal hospital in England flew into a rage, biting two men; and in South Africa, a bull elephant attempted to gore a conservationist. Watch out for your cats and toy dogs tonight, ladies. You never know when they may turn on you!
