A despicable teen, accused of repeatedly belly-flopping on dozens of piglets at a farm in Huercal-Overa in Almeria, Spain, has been sentenced to time in jail. According to Wednesday’s Daily Mail, the now 19-year-old farm worker (who has not been named) caused crushing injuries to the piglets when he landed on them with his sizable girth.
A total of 19 piglets were reported to have been killed immediately when the teen fell on their bodies – an additional 60 piglets suffered grievous injuries and had to be euthanized. The teen has stated that he was just joking around when he flopped onto the penned piglets three times – another young man was taking video of the cruel act.
A judge stated that the man’s behavior was “repulsive.” The teen was sentenced to 15 months in jail. Both the “belly-flopper” and the guy who took the video have been banned from working in any job connected to animals for three and a half years, and fined.
