AN evil prankster who ad­mit­ted record­ing him­self do­ing a Ne­kNom­i­na­tion stunt on­line by swal­low­ing a live FROG and in­sects has been fined £1,200.

In a 90-sec­ond video clip, Shel­don Jeans, 23, downed a glass of wa­ter filled with crick­ets, be­fore putting a frog in the same ves­sel and knock­ing it back whole.

Jeans, of Cow­plain, Hamps, be­came the first per­son to be suc­cess­fully pros­e­cuted for caus­ing cru­elty to any creature other than a fish.

After chang­ing his plea to guilty on the first day of his trial at Portsmouth Mag­is­trates’ Court, he was also or­dered to do 80 hours of un­paid work after ad­mit­ting caus­ing un­nec­es­sary suf­fer­ing to the an­i­mals, un­der the An­i­mal Wel­fare Act 2006.
