Frog in throat sicko fined
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.
