Man kills pet parrot over a NASCAR race

Well I thought that SEC football fans were crazy but apparently NASCAR fans take the cake. Either that or they're a bunch of bird-haters.

A New Jersey man accused of shooting and killing his African gray parrot with a BB gun because its screeching annoyed him while he was watching a NASCAR race on TV has been indicted on an animal cruelty charge.

Dennis Zeglin, 67, of Randolph was indicted Tuesday by a Morris County grand jury. The charge carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $15,000 fine.

Zeglin allegedly shot the parrot, named "Mikey," three times on June 7. His wife called police when she saw that the bird had been killed.
Hey Mikey! I think he likes it! So shut the heck up!
