There must be joy in Norfolk: Adria Hinkle and Andrew Cook were found to be guilty only of littering when they dropped dog and cat carcasses in supermarket dumpsters.
We can expect PETA to spin this as another victory over the forces of ignorance.
As Dave Hardy said, they should have been charged with fraud, if it is fraud to tell an animal shelter that you are adopting an animal, when you really plan to kill at it as soon as it is in your Death Van. But the charge of "obtaining property by false pretenses" did not stick.
The van itself was confiscated. Whoopeedoo.
More trial coverage from the anti-PETA folks.
