Man Sets Bunny on Fire

Manasseh Walker, 22, was arrested for the intentional burning of a domestic rabbit in Florida. The sheriff's office posted photos of the wounded rabbit, and it gained a lot of public interest. They were able to track down Walker within 24 hours of the incident thanks to #JusticeForThumper.

Walker claimed that he had been bitten by the rabbit. According to witnesses, they saw him chasing the animal while it was on fire.

Walker was charged with animal cruelty.

Comments from Allen:
What can I say?  Aside from the fact that rabbit "tastes like chicken,"  I have, in the past, had these cuddly critters as pets.  No one gets away with setting a pet bunny on fire without facing the consequences.

While you have a privilege to defend yourself when attacked by vicious animals (like the Idaho Falls man who was recently acquitted of the charge when he shot a pit bull that attacked him), I believe Mr. Walker will have a difficult time convincing a jury that he was "not guilty" of animal cruelty because he was attacked by a vicious animal with big nasty teeth and he set the rabbit on fire to defend himself.  I have seen that accusation made before, though.
