Of course, it’s probably animal cruelty to cage an owl as a soccer team mascot to begin with.
This is, at least personally speaking, horrible to watch. But, then, as long as we eat meat, I’m not sure why we should give a shiite about this poor, now dead owl when we’re feasting, for our own pleasure, on other animals every day, often several times a day.
Oh, yes, and the douchebag soccer football player added cowardice to douchebaggery by claimed he was trying to see if the bird was alive, not hurt it.
The owl mascot of the Colombian soccer team Atletico Junior died on Sunday after being kicked off the field by Luis Moreno, a player for the opposing side. The owl was first hit by a ball in mid-pass; a refereee stopped the game and Moreno, apparently unclear on proper owl-moving techniques, kicked the animal. “I want to apologise to the fans,” he said later. “I was not trying to hurt the owl. I did it to see if it would fly.”
