It’s Sod’s Law that you wait for one Russian animal abuse/football crossover story to turn up and then two come along at once.

One the very same weekend that third-tier Masuk-KMV made a brown bear perform their pre-match formalities, a similar incident also cracked off in the league above.

Indeed, a fan of Luch-Energiya Vladivostok decided he was so fed up with manager Aleksandr Grigoryan that he smuggled a live rooster all the way to Sunday’s away match against FC Fakel Voronezh to hurl at the beleaguered coach…

According to RT, the fan in question “risked being jailed for 15 days” but it transpires that the animal cruelty on display was perfectly excusable, as Luch-Energiya have only managed two wins in their last 10 games, leaving them third from bottom in the Football National League table – so obviously chickens must be thrown.

Grigoryan, the target of the giblet-toting missile, isn’t particularly popular among the Energiya support either, having left the club midway through the 2013/14 season to join despised rivals SKA Khabarovsk, only to return a few years later.
