Bartlesville, OK (The Weekly Vice) - Bradley Valdez, a 20-year-old Oklahoma man was jailed Wednesday after he allegedly set a mouse on fire and watched it run down the street.
According to Bartlesville police, officers were dispatched at around 10:25 p.m. after witnesses reported seeing something on fire running down the street.
Arriving officers searched the area and found a large dead mouse that appeared to have been set on fire. A container of lighter fluid was found on Valdez' front porch along with a charcoal grill that had recently been used.
A woman came out of the home and told officers that her husband, identified as Valdez, was responsible for burning the mouse. Valdez then emerged from the house and admitted to setting the animal on fire.
Valdez explained that he had purchased the mouse to feed to his pet snake, but that his snake wouldn't eat it. He had considered just releasing the mouse, but was afraid it would get into things. That's when he decided to set it on fire, stating that he didn't think it would be a big deal.
Valdez was booked into the Washington County Jail and charged with cruelty to animals.
