Yep...Saw This Coming

He's been fired.

A high-rise window washer in Boston has been fired because he killed a sea gull on the job.


An officer for the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (MSPCA) arrested Guay. He spent Friday night in jail. He had to be bailed out by his wife.

When he went to work Monday morning, he was told he was fired.

Guay says he loves animals. He and his wife have 14 finches, 2 parakeets, 4 doves, 3 cats, 2 dogs, a snake and several other pets.

Obligatory follow-up question:

Will the MSPCA cop be sending Mr. Guay and his wife a check every week now to cover the cost of feeding all these animals, now that the guy's lost his job and looking at a possible felony conviction?

I'm thinking not.

It's immeasurably more likely they'll be sending a platoon of armed agents to his house to kick his door in and confiscate his pets.

I wish I was kidding.
