Read the whole thing: When police raided a home in Werneth, Oldham, looking for drugs, the sniffer dog knocked over a hamster cage. The creature escaped. The police dog ate the hamster. Police then forced the dog to vomit up the dead hamster.
Police then arrested the hamster’s owner, one Muza Khan. No, not for any drugs offences. He was booked to appear at Oldham Magistrates Court because having killed his hamster, police found a bald parakeet during their raid. They said Miko the parakeet was “in distress”.
