Such a vile man. I hope he get's a lengthy prison sentence.

''A Florida man is standing trial on a felony animal cruelty charge for beating an iguana to death because it bit him on the arm, after a judge rejected his "stand your ground" defense.

Prosecutors say Patterson "savagely beat, tormented, tortured, and killed" the 3-foot (1-meter) iguana in a half-hour attack caught on surveillance video. Prosecutor Alexandra Dorman said that "at no time was the iguana posing any real threat" to Patterson last September and he "was not justified in his actions when he kicked this defenseless animal at least 17 times causing its death."

A necropsy, though, showed the iguana had a lacerated liver, broken pelvis and internal bleeding, which were "painful and terrifying" injuries, prosecutors contend.''

Latest theory is that the female leader got disoriented and the whole herd is lost.

There was at least one news report that the elephants passed by an alcohol factory and broke into a brewery and got drunk.

I'll post some more news when I hear it.
