Moose, Pigs, a Phillies Fan and Grandma: Let's Tase 'Em All!
Both are bizarre cases, but we've seen weirder. These days, getting tased is the new getting touched by Michael Jackson -- everyone's doing it. Even animals. Here's our unofficial compendium of strange creatures who have encountered the wrath of doughnut-eaters armed with 50,000 volts.
Sheep on meth: Or as a British paper put it: "Herd of sheep, off tits on drugs, savagely tased."
A Phillies fan: By far the most vile creature on this list. Who can argue with the Philadelphia cop who tased a drunk dude who ran on the field earlier this year? ACLU, put that hand down.
An elk: Last year, a Linn County, Oregon sheriff's deputy used his stun gun on en elk for a full 25 seconds while a state trooper freed its antlers from a fence. The alternative was killing the animal, but the elk still bitched about it on Facebook.
A police officer with a beautiful voice:
Grandmas: Video of a Travis County, Texas traffic stop last year shows a constable tasing the hell out of a 72-year-old nana:
And this past June, ten Oklahoma officers jolted a sickly 86-year-old woman after "she took an aggressive posture in her bed." No joke. As they stunned her, a grandson yelled, "Don't tase my granny!"
