In Norwood, Massachusetts, an employee of the Sharon Public Schools faces animal cruelty charges after a witness reported the man doing a “happy dance” after intentionally using his car to chase, kill and beat a goose in Norwood. Rory Marty has been charged with a motor vehicle offense, animal cruelty and drug possession; authorities found Viagra, however he had no prescription for the drug.
According to Fox News, the unnamed witness told authorities she saw a man and a woman in a silver vehicle driving directly towards two geese that had been drinking water from a puddle near Short Street. At first the woman thought the driver was just being a jerk, but then noticed the man turned his vehicle around and took aim at the geese again.
“…the vehicle stopped and paused and appeared to ‘line up’ the geese in order to hit them with the vehicle,” the report stated. “The vehicle flashed its lights and then drove directly at the geese.”
One of the geese had been hit by the car, and then the woman passenger got out of the car, picked up a stick and hit the goose; the man quickly followed. Once the goose was killed, the witness stated the couple did a “happy dance.”
“Maybe if he kills like this, he can kill anybody else,” the witness told Fox News.
The witness reported the vehicle’s license plate number to police and videoed the disturbing situation. Police tracked down the man, and said he was wearing the same shirt as the one in the video. Marty appeared in court on Thursday and has been released on personal recognizance; he is due back in court in June.
