Man arrested for wearing guinea pig on his head
A Virginia man is facing an animal cruelty charge after police say he skinned a guinea pig and made a head ornament out of it.
Animal control officer Gerald L. Cubbage says 40-year-old Charles Woodson of Front Royal bought the guinea pig at a pet store in February. Neighbors later saw him wearing its hide on his head.
Warren County Deputy Laura L. Gomez said police seized a guinea pig hide including its head from Woodson’s home. They also have a photograph of Woodson wearing the hide.
Woodson faces up to a year in jail and a $2,500 fine if convicted of the misdemeanor charge.
A hearing is scheduled for March 23.
It was not immediately clear Thursday whether Woodson has secured an attorney.
