Two exceptionally cruel men living in a home in Kingsway, Heysham, United Kingdom, fed their pet hamster a hallucinogenic laced soda to see how it would react and videoed the entire sick deed. Corey Lee Destrow, 22, and Nchinmunya Ntembe, 22, were charged with animal cruelty offences after the video emerged online. The men could be heard laughing as the hamster named Mr. Chow reacted to the drugs. Later, the men gave Mr. Chow a cannabis leaf to eat.
“We are going to kill it ….. it is gong nuts,” the men could be heard in the video. “This could be the end for Mr. Chow.”
Ntembe, was given a four-month concurrent prison sentence for causing unnecessary suffering and starving his two Mastiff dogs named Faith and Zeus and giving cannabis and LSD to a hamster. He has been banned from keeping animals for the next eight years. Both of his dogs suffered fractured skulls believed to have been caused by blunt force trauma. Destrow was sentenced to 12 months of community service, ordered to serve 80 hours of unpaid work and has been banned from keeping animals for two years. The animals owned by Ntembe have all been placed in new homes.
Tragically, that wasn’t all of the animal abuse occurring at that home in May 2016 according to the RSPCA investigating officer who stated the home was a complete mess when she arrived. The inspector described the home as having dog feces everywhere, the dogs slept on a bare plastic bed, another dog had been tied to a radiator, and the hamster was kept in a kitchen cabinet. Co-defendant Luke Gabriel Horn was also charged with causing unnecessary suffering to another Mastiff in the home. His dog named Troy was discovered in the home emaciated.
