UVic and its bunny killers
For the third time in just over a year the police have been called to investigate what appears to be an unprovoked bunny killing at the university of victoria.
An employee reporting for work at Uvic's commmons block made the grisly find early wednesday morning.
Campus security discovered the deceased rabbit hanging outside the window of the village grees cafeteria, a vegetarian-oriented eatery adjacent to the commons block student residences. Anti vegetarian graffiti was also scrawled on the window.
Uvic spokesman Patti Pitts said a security camera recorded the images of three males arriving at the scene, remving the bunny from a sack and hanging it on a string where it could be seen by cafeteria patrons.
Its sad and senseless Pitts said. The university doesn't condone any kind of animal cruelty.
But Pitts said the quality of the images on the videotape may not be clear enough to discern the identities of the culprits.
Saanich police are investigating, though they did not have any suspects identified immediately after the incident.
The first incident last fall, a man and a women were arrested after the campus bunny was found with an arrow through its ears.
The two were fined $100 for discharging a bow and arrow in contravention of saanich bylaws.
However they were never charged with animal cruelty.
In September, a Uvic student who fatally BEAT a rabbit while in a drunken stupor pleaded guilty t animal cruelty and received absolute discharge.
You know from everything I read about serial killers, one thing that stands out is their cruelity to animals. There is no way anyone could ever convience me that someone who would beat a bunny to death is not a threat to society.
