Fisherman Opens a Can of Worms

A British fisherman ate a stomach-churning bucket of live worms to raise money for charity Friday, drawing fire from an animal welfare group.

Llewellyn Diamond, 53, who raised about $1,000 for a hospital, said: “It’s just like spaghetti. A quick chomp soon stops them wriggling too much.” He added: “I certainly don’t think it’s cruel to eat them.”

But the Royal Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals disagreed.

“We take a very dim view and just wish people could think of other ways to raise money,” said a spokeswoman.
