Live Rat-Eater Busted by Facebook

| by PETA

Anthony Weiner isn't the only person to be caught being an, ahem, weenie via social networking. Utah resident Andy Ray Harris apparently thought he was among "friends" when a video of him allegedly eating a live baby rat was posted on a tattoo parlor's Facebook page. But one of the business's "friends" is also a friend of animals and forwarded the incriminating video to PETA. We, in turn, passed it along to local law-enforcement authorities, who promptly charged Harris with cruelty to animals.

Please let PETA know whenever you see anything questionable involving animals on a social-networking site. Friends don't let friends hurt animals and get away with it.
