Man accused of eating live baby rat

I don’t know what it is with Utah this week!

31-year-old Andy Ray Harris of Tooele faces an animal cruelty charge after a Facebook video surfaced showing him eating what appeared to be a live baby rat.

Harris of Tooele was charged with the misdemeanor in April after authorities viewed the video after the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) reported it to police.

PETA spokesman Martin Mersereau says the organization received complaints about the video back in March.

Police say they recognized Harris in the video as he has had previous contact with police.

The video shows a man putting what appears to be a tiny, hairless rat in his mouth, chewing it up and swallowing it.

Harris has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
