Thorns for the Leetonia man (term used loosely) who, according to witnesses, purposely drove his truck over two pet ducks, killing them, in the Columbiana McDonald's parking lot. He disputes this, claiming it was an innocent mistake. Yet he did not stop after admittedly running over the ducks. Animal cruelty charges were pending as this was written. Compounding the tragedy is that one of the ducks, Sophia, had recently laid a dozen eggs which were not expected to survive. Here's a thought on a suitable form of punishment:?have him do some time at the pond at Memorial Park in Salem scraping all of the duck crap off the walkways. With a toothbrush, while on his hands and knees.
