Pro-meat protesters fined for eating raw squirrels at vegan stall

Two pro-meat protesters have been fined after eating raw squirrels at a food market.

Deonisy Khlebnikov, 22, and Gatis Lagzdins, 29, ate the still fur-covered dead animals in front of members of the public, including young children, outside a vegan stall in Soho, the West End of London.

The pair were asked to stop by onlookers, including the parent of an upset child, but continued their protest at the Soho vegan food market in Rupert Street on 30 March, the Crown Prosecution Service said.


Unfortunately the provenance of the squirrels isn't mentioned in the article, but if they were caught in the wild it's likely that they got themselves some free health issues by eating them raw and including the fur, too.

Wouldn't have the same shock factor, and shock factor is what the stunt is about.

While we're on KyoAni, it has been confirmed that a server computer on the ground floor of the building has survived. (Note near end of this article.) Another death in hospital is also reported, bringing the toll to 35.

I'd say the bad news outweighs the good there.

First 10 victims of KyoAni fire named, two anime directors among them

Suspect possibly linked to series of online posts threatening KyoAni over novel rejection

It is bad that it had to come to this, but maybe this will shine a much-needed light on the mental health issues that underlay some way-too-rabid otaku's behaviour...

(considering one of the victims and some of KyoAni's series, would it be inconsiderate of me to refer to Aoba as the "Moearsonist"?)
