This is a bizarre news story, indeed. Cartoons have apparently been running on TV in certain Eastern European countries that feature squirrels killing themselves in various oddball ways, a la Itchy and Scratchy. The one above features two of these rather disgusting cartoons, first a squirrel jumps in an egg holder, and is decapitated by a hungry human. In the second one, a Mexican squirrel (it’s oh-so-stereotypical, folks) jumps onto a cactus, and meets a bloody end. Not surprisingly, some people aren’t pleased about them.
Full story with another cartoon clip here.
