Heartless pet owner glued his hamster to a bottle before taking ‘selfie’

A heartless and disgusting pet owner glued his pet hamster to the back of a bottle in crucifixion style before taking a “selfie” to social media. Raeef Saeed, 24, posted the sick photo on Facebook.

According to the Sun, Saeed, who lives in Sheffield, South Yorks appeared at the city’s magistrates’ court on Friday in a prosecution case brought by the RSPCA. He pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary suffering to an animal under the Animal Welfare Act  on January 18, 2017.  An RSPCA inspector testified in court she had been given the Facebook post showing the disturbing photo:

“I attended his house and he was shown a screenshot of the photo and admitted it was him. He was laughing and smiling – he couldn’t understand what all the fuss was about as he said he hadn’t killed it.

He claimed the rodent was a wild mouse he’d caught on a glue board – though vets suspect it was in fact a pet Russian dwarf hamster and co-incidentally the defendant had owned a hamster and even showed me the empty cage. He said he’d pried the rodent off the glue board with a spoon and washed it under a tap with water during which time it was squealing.”

Inspector Ronksley continued; explaining glue boards are trays of plastic with extremely strong holding glue:

“They are horribly cruel and cause enormous suffering to the animals unfortunate enough to get stuck in them. The act of removing the rodent from this would have been horrific for the tiny creature. If that wasn’t enough he then stuck the poor animal to the bottle to take the photo before, he said, letting it go in the house somewhere.

We don’t know what happened to it after that, no body was recovered, but it seems impossible that things ended well.”

Saeed was sentenced to a year’s ban on keeping all animals; a year of  community service including 80 hours of unpaid work and ordered to pay a fine and court costs.

What a stupid and heartless person.

    Heartless and disgusting about says it all for this POS! Anyone who “couldn’t understand what all the fuss was about” with doing this needs to be banned from EVER owning a pet again, not just one year.

    The poor hamster is undoubtedly lying in a landfill somewhere, which is exactly where this POS should be. The punishment does NOT fit the crime. When is scum like this going to start getting REAL sentences over there, since they do have laws in place to deal with this properly?

    I think we all know what he did to this creature. He held him half shinned underwater still attached to the bottle in front of laughing friends and watched him suffer and drown.

    Oh, that’s really teaching him …. I? Sure he’ll never hurt another animal after such a strong punishment.. I honestly don’t know who’s the bigger asshole here. The asshole who abused an animal or the asshole judge that gave such a lame punishment….

    Glue boards are a horrible way for an animal to die. I tried to discourage a woman at Dollar Tree today to not use glue boards for her mouse problem as the animal suffers for two to three days many times before death.
    I’ll give you some advice. If you ever encounter a critter stuck to a glue board, you can release them with plastic or rubber utensils and copious amounts of vegetable or similar oil. If you work carefully but quickly so the animal doesn’t get more stuck, you can release them. I’ve done it and it works. Be careful to not get bitten. You may want to wear leather gloves.

    Rafeed Saeed has proven he is not of the human race and should be tied to a leaky raft and set adrift to whatever third world country he came from – He needs a megadose of street justice.

    I don’t understand the light joke of sentence. This was an extreme act of cruelty to a living, feeling creature….I don’t care that it was just a mouse. Anyone capable of causing this kind of suffering and even saying what’s the fuss about, just shows he is dangerous to all because he doesn’t give a damn about inflicting pain on another. In face, he was amused. How much crazier can you get? Shame on the judge for giving him such minor consequences.

      Sherry look at the picture that is not a mouse. It’s a hamster. But, never mind what it is, nothing should be treated with such cruelty.

    This sadistic sociopath will likely become a serial killer when he tires of hurting innocent animals!! Lock him up or euthanize him now!! The worst thing that a parent can create is a sadistic sociopath that enjoys harming the innocent!! That would be a nightmare for any parent and I hope that they are aware of what kind of monster they’ve created!!!! Go to hell you monster!!!
