Bryan Werner set the opossum on fire using acetone and a grill lighter, according to Lee County deputies.

Investigators rushed to Palms Drive on Fort Myers Beach and found the opossum alive, suffering from significant burns. It was rushed to the hospital for treatment, but later died from its injuries.

Deputies also found a metal trap with a string attached to it. At the end of the string, was the acetone and lighter.

“This intentional act of violence against an innocent animal is senseless and cruel,” explained Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno.

Fingerprints on the acetone can matched Werner.

Another person was at the home when deputies arrived, it’s unclear if that person is also facing criminal charges.
