COLLIER COUNTY, FLORIDA – A man decapitated the hamster and dropped it in a box on
the side of the road, according to officials at the Collier County sheriff’s office.
The box containing the hamster was found on 27th Avenue NE by a local woman on January
5th. According to police records, 5 more boxes containing small animals brutally mutilated
were found in the past year.
Inside the box, the authorities found a false name and address receipt, a hamster purchased
from the pet shop, a scissors package, blood-soaked handkerchiefs and a nail package.
The officials who contacted the pet shop where the hamster was purchased, examined the
images with an oath. It was understood that the hamster was bought by the 21-year-old
Christian Lee Hunter.
Authorities said they consulted investigators in Lee County about the incident. Investigators
said the name of the 21-year-old Hunter was mentioned in the case of a hamster’s split body
in May last year. Hunter told the authorities that the hamster dog was shredded.
An order was issued to search Hunter’s home, located 150 meters from the hamster’s box,
and authorities arrested Hunter. Authorities say Hunter admitted that he bought hamsters
under the fake name.
“Animal cruelty cannot be justified,” said Collier County Sheriff Kevin Rambosk and said,
“We are hopeful for the mental health of Hunter.”
Hunter is accused of cruelty to animals and illegally exterminating the animal
