mice chewing competition outrages rspca
the rspca is expected to seek the strongest penalties against the participants of a so-called jackass competition in an inner brisbane pub in which two contestants chewed up live mice.
rspca chief inspector byron hall says the exchange hotel event is an outrageous act of cruelty.
two men in their 20s accepted a challenge to place live mice in their mouths and bite their tails off in a bid to win $500.
but inspector hall says as the competition went on and the men were encouraged to chew the mice up and they did.
he says all concerned could face fines of up to $75,000 and two years in prison.
"well it was premeditated for starters," he said.
"somebody had to think it up and provide the mice and then convince people to do it.
"so ... not only is it premeditated but it is down right cruel and absolutely stupid for starters."

Disgusting on so many levels. This particular gaming show has crossed the line big time. Hope that the producers are held accountable. . .
