Kicking an OWL equals Jail???? - March 1, 2011, 02:11 PM



Deportivo Pereira's Luis Moreno, seen playing for the Panamanian national team in 2009, could face charges over kicking an owl.



A professional soccer player in Colombia faces up to three months in jail for kicking an opposing team's lucky owl, which had been been hit by a ball after landing on the field Sunday. The owl died Tuesday.
The owl was considered a good luck charm for the Atlético Junior squad in Barranquilla and lived in its Metropolitan Stadium.
Luis Moreno, a Panamanian player for Deportivo Pereira, was met with chants of "Murderer! Murderer! Murderer!" after kicking the owl and had to leave the stadium under heavy police guard, according to the Daily Mail in London.
For those too squeamish to watch the footage, which the Daily Mail warns constitutes animal cruelty, a Pereira defender chases a Junior attacker into the penalty box, wins the ball from him and clears it, poorly, hitting the owl that had landed on the field.
The referee stops play, and Moreno trots over and kicks the bird off the field, a distance of about three yards.
The incident was aired on national television and prompted widespread outrage, and not just from Junior fans. Environmental groups urged sanctions against Moreno and called for protests at the National Soccer building in Bogota.
Moreno apologized, saying it was not his intention to harm the bird.
"I did it to see if the owl could fly," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.
The owl was taken to Zoosalud veterinary clinic in Barranquilla, the Daily Mail reported. Veterinarians said it was suffering from stress and needed sedation but that X-rays indicated no fractures.
The veterinarians later told Colombia Reports, a news website, that the owl died early Tuesday of respiratory arrest.
A Spanish-language report from Radio Santa Fe in Bogota said that Moreno faces one to three months in prison and a maximum fine of 50,000 pesos, about $26.
Moreno apologized again in a news conference and said he would accept responsibility.
"I apologize to the whole country and more to the fans of Barranquilla because it was a very grave action, and if I receive a penalty, then I'll take it."

thats fucked up ;/


Edit: Looks like he's looking at facing 3-months in jail if convicted.. (missed that part)

Not one for vengeance but I hope Moreno wanders into a bad place one night and meets scum like himself that beat him to within an inch of his pathetic life so he has to crawl out of the alley in pain, on his tongue to get help.

I hate deportivo pereira....

This was my next question. What the hell was it doing on the field!?

Granted he didnt kick it very hard, but it looked like he booted it right in the side of the head. "It was not his intention to harm the bird" and he did it "to see if the bird could fly". Given how hard (and where) he kicked it, that's like throwing a cat off a 10 story building to see if it could land on its feet.

I like how he pats the opposing player on the gut like, "It's cool. I got it."

should the same be done to injuried players on field? I mean it's just another object laying in the field of play, right? Or an injuried motorist laying In the middle of the street, should I just drive over him? I mean I'am just a cager and roads are meant to be driven on, right?

Not only was it a defenseless animal,but the opposing teams mascot.
Complete classless/cruel act on the part of moreno.

Well, that depends. Do you know if they can fly or not? If not, it's best to check.
