Man Appears to Kick Squirrel Off Cliff at Grand Canyon

The video has been taken down from YouTube, but I know it is out there.  I saw it on the news.  I chose to just post a still photo.

HH:  Let me start out by saying not a lot of things shock me.  I have worked in the criminal justice system before and seen some of the worse of human behavior. I have heard all the excuses.  
Often it can be claimed to be someone acting out of passion, a crime of momentary loss of your senses.  Then there are the stone cold killers who are the real monsters.  The people with no empathy at all.  That’s a partial definition of psychopath.
When I saw in this video on the evening news tonight, I was appalled and disgusted.  It made my skin crawl.
It is one thing to hunt for food, to kill because you are threatened, to defend your own safety.  It is quite another to kill for pleasure. But to kill for your twisted, sick enjoyment, is completely horrifying.
If this is an accurate reflection of what happened, the man using food to lure a squirrel to come close to him, putting his shoe on so he could then kick the animal into the FREAKING GRAND CANYON and then laughing like the sick, twisted, perverted scum that he is. That a ‘person’ did this for amusement and it was digitally recorded.  So he has friends that are just as twisted and also find this amusing.  How he thinks this is somehow funny, I don’t understand.  This totally frights me. 
I hope he is identified by name and made to face his own vile behavior.  He is obviously mentally disturbed, but he is probably also very dangerous, and he needs to be screened, prosecuted, and made to face consequences. 
Monsters do walk among us.

The historic Tower of London is bleeding poppies! Artist Paul Cummins placed 888,246 ceramic flowers throughout the grounds as a tribute to the soldiers who fell during World War I. The installation is called “Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red,” and each of the ceramic flowers represents one British or Colonial fatality during the war.

THE death of Faridah, the hornbill, in Miri last week exposed the worst and the best of Sarawakians.
The despicable attempt by three young men to capture the matriarch among the flock of hornbills at Piasau Garden which resulted in her death, showed the sad callousness of some among us towards the conservation of wildlife in the state.
Faridah was the darling of birdwatchers and nature lovers in Miri. She and her mate had produced more than 50 fledglings although only four of her offspring are regularly seen in the garden.
