Man On Ride-Along Stomps Opossum To Death
Evan Bryce Schuler Found Guilty Of Animal Cruelty

DANVILLE, Va. -- A Virginia man on a police ride-along was found guilty of animal cruelty after he jumped out of the police car and stomped an opossum to death.

The Danville Register & Bee reported Tuesday that 23-year-old Evan Bryce Schuler saw the opossum run along a fence. A police officer testified that Schuler ran up to the fence, grabbed the links and "started stomping."

Schuler's lawyer, James Priest, said Schuler grew up on a farm where opossums killed his chickens and acted on instinct. Priest appealed the district court's ruling and the case will move to circuit court.

Actually - coming from farm country- I know exactly how this can be called "instinct." I live in the burbs of Pittsburgh and every time I see a groundhog - I wanna pull out my .40 cal and take a shot at it (cause I dont have a rifle to shoot it).

In Farm country - groundhogs are demonic, devious creatures digging holes everywhere - if you run into any of these holes with a tractor or other farm equipment - it has the chance to break axles or otherwise destroy equipment.

This guy was probably raised somewhere in dub-v - where opposums were the demonic animals of choice. Not a good choice to do it infront of a cop - but I can see where he could call it instinct.
