Man who skinned guinea pig found guilty
A Virginia man has been found guilty of animal cruelty after he skinned a guinea pig to make a hat.
Woodson purchased the guinea pig from a pet store and neighbors later saw him wearing the skin of a guinea pig on his head. Woodson had earlier said that he killed the animal humanely and that, at worst, he was guilty of a hunting violation.
He also said the hat was inspired by his admiration for Davy Crockett.
Woodson was sentenced to six months in jail with four months suspended. He had faced up to a year in jail.
