Jury selection began Monday in the trial of two animal rights activists charged with animal cruelty after they were discovered dumping dead animals in a trash bin.You just can't make this shit up.
Adria J. Hinkle, of Norfolk, Va., and Andrew B. Cook, of Virginia Beach, Va., are charged with 21 counts each of animal cruelty in addition to charges of littering and obtaining property by false pretenses. Both volunteered with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA.
Hinkle and Cook were PETA volunteers in Norfolk when they offered to take animals from crowded animal shelters in Bertie, Hertford and Northampton counties. Their lawyer said the load of animals became too large, and the workers began euthanizing the dogs and cats and dumping their bodies in a trash bin at a grocery store.
