In Tavares, Florida, police arrested a man and charged him with animal cruelty on Friday night. James Miller is alleged to have caged a raccoon and then drowned the animal because it killed some of his chickens and damaged his home.

According to  Click Orlando, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office was notified by a woman who witnessed her neighbor take a raccoon in a cage onto his boat and then dropped the cage into the water. The woman, reportedly told the man to stop and said it was inhumane and instead he should have called animal services to deal with the animal. The raccoon was submerged for several minutes – killing it.

When Miller’s wife was questioned, she told police the raccoon had killed some of her chickens and later ran into their house. Miller was later arrested and taken into custody.

Rest in peace raccoon.

    Stupidity knows no bounds. Caught red handed doing something wrong and continue to do it. Now moron, pay the price for your disgusting treatment/death of this raccoon. Do you think he understood what he did wrong?

    RACOONS, DEERS OR RABITS HAVE EMOTIONS AND FEELINGS JUST LIKE US. IF WE CAN JUST KEEP THAT IN MIND AND HAVE COMPASSION TO ANIMALS, THIS WORLD WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE!

    You can’t retrain an a-hole. This idiot will always be a killer of innocents. Lock him up and he might think a little more but always revert to no-brainers.

    How is drowning a stupid raccoon bad? You people are fucking insane. Would it have been better if he had just shot it? If a raccoon killed any of my chickens, that I love and take care of, id drown the fucker too. Of course its all crazy women defending the fucking raccoon.

    Both James Miller and his ahole wife sound like two backwoods inbreds. To treat ANY animal so cruelly only proves these two are beyond help and deserve to be sitting in jail. Raccoons do what wild animals do – and if these two are so stupid and ignorant they should be hogtied and dumped in the everglades – all they are good for is gator lunch.
