Ozzy Has Nothing on this Guy

ozzy.jpgOh, it’s easy to bite the head off a bat — bats are disgusting, and no one gives a damn one way or another. Even PETA doesn’t give a shit.

But don’t mess with ducks, man. The Humane Society will eat your babies. Just ask 26-year-old businessman Scott Clark, who — while staying at an Embassy Suites hotel in St. Paul, Minnesota — cornered a live duck, grabbed the bird, and ripped its poor head off.

Clark then turned to onlookers and said: “I’m hungry. I’m gonna eat it,” said St. Paul police Sgt. John Wuorinen, citing the police report.”He was allegedly drunk,” Wuorinen said.

Allegedly? I hope to God the man was drunk, cause I’d hate to imagine what kind of sober man rips the head off a little hotel duckling and threatens to eat it in front of guests at the Embassy Suites. I hope he was really drunk.

Of course, the Humane Society is pissed — Clark is facing two years in prison and a $5,000 fine. But, their real beef is with the hotel — they say the hotel had no damn business having live ducks on the premises. “I think Embassy Suites needs to take another look at this and review how they keep ducks safe, or use fish like most hotels would use,” a spokesperson said.

Or maybe just keep the “allegedly” drunk guests away from the birds.

Is the HS mad at the Peabody too? Maybe they're more protective of their ducks.
