Images that are chilling. According to the Animal Defense Foundation 30 Million Friends, which says it has consulted an "unbearable" video, a student of a high school in Marseille would have "chewed to death" a "living mouse," she said in a statement. Only an image showing the young man putting the mouse in his mouth has been shared, so far.
As reported by the Foundation, the facts would have taken place during an evening of integration of the preparatory classes of the Lycée Thiers de Marseille, Friday, September 8. The high school student would have accepted the bet to put the mouse in his mouth, but would then have chewed until killing it.
The school's management declined to comment on the case. The rectorate of Aix-Marseille has recognized a "shocking case", which took place during a "drunken evening outside the school", assures 30 Million Friends. The Foundation filed a complaint for acts of cruelty and serious abuse resulting in the death of an animal.
