MAN GETS FINED £4,000 FOR DOSE OF THE CRABS!
A keen environmentalist has been ordered to pay £4,000 after catching, cooking and eating endangered native crabs.
Christopher Hemsley, 41, thought he was doing a good deed by catching what he believed to be invasive American signal crabs in a trap his wife had bought him.
A nosey bastard spotted them and alerted the Environment Agency, which called in the police. When told what the crustaceans were, Hemsley admitted killing white-clawed crabs contrary to the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981; and taking fish in an inland water with a trap without a licence, contrary to the Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries Act 1975.
Diana Matthews, chairman of magistrates, imposed a fine of £3,500 for killing the crabs and £400 for trapping them, and ordered to pay £85 costs and £15 victim surcharge, making a total of £4000.
FUCK ME! £4K FOR SOME CRABS! I had a mate got a dose of the CRABS IN THAILAND and came back to MOTHERWELL and opened A SEAFOOD RESTAURANT!
