Hope this guy was drunk or high when this happened and ends up with nightmares for the rest of his life.
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

Well if I'm honest I'm not surprised. Furries can do a lot of good so of course if they see someone hitting another person they're going to jump in and stop it.

What I like most is this endpiece from the article.

Quote
For those wondering, the furry fandom is a community of enthusiasts who celebrate characters and stories involving anthropomorphic animals -- in other words -- fictitious animal characters that have human traits.

Right,  no unnecessary mention of sex or total junk. 
Furries, as far as I can tell, are generally kind good people.  This is an example.
Bear your soul and take control
If the wolves are howling outside your door
Invite them in and make them beg for more

This news was quite a lift.
"The coyote is a living, breathing allegory of Want. He is always hungry. He is always poor, out of luck, and friendless. The meanest creatures despise him. And even the fleas would dessert him for a velocipide."~Mark Twain
