A man from Waterlooville has been ordered to do 80 hours of unpaid work after admitting causing unnecessary suffering to a frog and a lizard by swallowing them.
Sheldon Jeans of Longwood Avenue, Cowplain was also ordered to pay £1,200 in costs by Portsmouth magistrates after he changed his plea to guilty on the first day of his trial.
The small frog and lizard were swallowed by Jeans on 3 February this year as part of the Neknomination game. He was seen on footage that he posted on Facebook putting first the frog and then the lizard into a glass of water and swallowing them whilst they were still clearly moving.
Jeans said that he had regurgitated the animals afterwards but there is no evidence of this or that they survived.
