Police say a man in Florida assaulted his girlfriend and then attacked her pet rabbit after an argument over women's rights.

There has not been a word invented in the English language to adequately describe the rage stroke this asshole induces. Via CBS12 News:

According to an arrest report, when the woman retreated to a bedroom to end the argument she heard a high-pitched screaming coming from the apartment's living room. She told police she went to the living room and saw her boyfriend James W. Wertz, 28, abusing her pet rabbit by squeezing and punching it. She said he was hitting the rabbit so hard that blood was coming from its face.

When the woman tried to get Wertz to stop, she said he became enraged. She tried calling 9-1-1 and he threw her across the room, she said. He then grabbed a shirt and left, according to the report.


What a sick bastard, although it's no surprise that he likes to hit women and torture animals. The woman also fled the apartment, telling police she feared for her safety if she stayed in the apartment (because he has a set of keys). He was later arrested on battery and animal cruelty charges.
