Hong Kong man gets 3 months' jail for stabbing 10 turtles to death with pencils


HONG KONG: A jobless man who stabbed 10 turtles to death with pencils because one of them bit him during feeding was jailed for three months by a Hong Kong court on Friday. Eastern Court heard that Choi Man-sang, 60, a retiree with mild intellectual disability, frequently carried pencils around because he loved writing. But one bit his finger and out of anger Choi stabbed the turtles. A search of his home found 186 pencils, four pencil sharpeners and three pencil cases. But magistrate Cheng Lim-chi said the case could not be called minor when Choi had “stabbed the turtles to death with cruel means”.
