Anti-Vegan Trolls Fined For Eating Raw Squirrel At Vegan Event In London

 

This week, Gatis Lagzdins, 29, and Deonisy Khlebnikov, 22, were ordered to pay fines of 200 pounds (roughly $250) and 400 pounds ($500) respectively, plus “costs and a surcharge,” for causing “distress” at the March 30 event.

Lagzdins and Khlebnikov told the judge they attended the event, the Soho Vegan Market, in order to a raise awareness of the alleged dangers of a vegan diet.

Footage of the incident was posted online in March, showing Lagzdins speaking with concerned shoppers and police officers while holding a dead squirrel.

A prosecutor wrote “by choosing to do this outside a vegan food stall and continuing with their disgusting and unnecessary behavior despite requests to stop, including from a parent whose child was upset by their actions, the prosecution was able to demonstrate that they had planned and intended to cause distress to the public.Their pre-meditated actions caused significant distress to members of the public, including young children."
