Here's the latest story in the When College Bros Attack series: two men who claim to be UC Berkeley law students are accused of beheading a bird in Las Vegas, the Associated Press reported. We hope that they did not plan on becoming environmental justice lawyers.

Witnesses allegedly saw Eric Cuellar and Justin Teixeira, both 24,throw a dead bird while laughing, KLAS reported. The bird was a 14-year-old helmeted guinea fowl.

The suspects were captured on surveillance chasing the bird into trees, and then emerging carrying the bird's head, police say. "According to the security people, the men were laughing and joking about the fact of what they had done," Sgt. John Sheahan of Metro Police told KLAS.
