A student who fried a hamster while drunk has been ordered to do 120 hours of unpaid work in the community.

:: WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT BELOW

James White, 21, admitted causing unnecessary suffering to the female Syrian hamster after a court accepted it could not be established whether the animal was alive when it went into the pan.

District Judge Roy Anderson told White he was sentencing him on the basis the rodent died minutes before, when the defendant was handling it.

Selby Magistrates' Court heard White had drunk so much in his flat in York he was "on the point of madness" and could not remember what happened.

The judge said it was clear the hamster did not die from natural causes.

White, who is studying international relations and politics at York University, changed his plea to guilty on Thursday, on the basis that his rough handling of the animal killed it before he put it in the pan.

District Judge Anderson said: "By virtue of your treatment of this small, unfortunate rodent you've destroyed your good character and acquired a criminal conviction.

"It's accepted now that there was rough handling of that animal but that it couldn't be established that it was putting it in the frying pan and applying heat that caused its death.

"Had that sadistic conduct been established I would be dealing with you in a far more serious way than I am."

White was also banned from keeping animals for eight years and ordered to pay £1,000 costs.

Phil Brown, prosecuting, told the court police were called to a block of flats on February 2.

When officers arrived they found White extremely drunk and there was a "strong and pungent smell" and a "frying pan next to the hob with a hamster in it".

According to the prosecutor, White told the officer: "What, I f****** fried it? I fried it."

The court heard the hamster, which belonged to White's flatmate, died from heart failure.

Kevin Blount, defending, said the hamster's death was the result of "drunken foolishness" and there was "no deliberate intent".

RSPCA Inspector Claire Mitchell said: "I don't know why anyone would think of doing that when drunk."

WARNING THE LINK DOES SHOW AN IMAGE OF THE HAMSTER


ok how drunk do you have to be to be this bloody moronic.
 
Drunk's got nothing to do with it. Plenty of people get drunk without frying or injury small animals. The guy's just an evil S.O.B.
 
I've been drunk off my ass, but damn...

I had a hamster once.:(


Really though, this is practically humane compared to the things we do to animals in slaughter houses.
 
I have been drunk off my ass on several occasions, and never, ever would it cross my mind in a million years to try to throw my cat in the oven and turn it on.

Drunkenness is not an excuse, this is sadism.

You haven't met my cat.

Just kidding. She's a good cat.:woot:

The very action required to do this would sober a decent person up. Only bath salts are potent enough to make a decent person do this and they would have made him eat it raw so he is full of ****. This wasn't drug induced.
 
The smell must have truly been awful. Too bad for the hamster.

Oh god the thought of the smell.:barf: I would have probably heated the hot iron back up and commenced to beating his ass with it.
 
It also says it wasn't even his own hamster, but his flatmate's....


Yeeeah....if someone did that to my pet, we would have serious issues.
 
You people are underestimating the power of alcohol.

You speak as if no one here has ever been drunk before. This sadistic act was something already within the person, not something magically induced by drink.
 
I taped a hamster to a ceiling fan once...but I didn't fry it.

Oooooook. He had probably forsaken his prayers that morning. :whatever:

If you genuinely believe that anyone can commit a violent act purely because they had a few too many, remind me never to go drinking with you.
 
What a sickening individual this guy must be to cause this to animals.

I genuinely believe someone can commit a violent act because they've had a few too many. So there's that.
 
Getting drunk doesn't magically make you a sadist if you're not one already.
 
Sadist? What's that supposed to mean? Getting drunk reduces your ability to understand the consequences of your actions.

Really? I've been alive for 56 years....I have been around people who get drunk on a regular basis that entire time....I have seen thousands of people drunk.

None of them ever killed an animal.


You are underestimating the power of a sick mind to blame outside forces for their perversions.
 
What a pr!ck. Violence against animals is something that seriously riles me up. Somebody should wrap a George Foreman grill around this f*****s head.
