Luis Moreno, Deportivo Pereira defender, who kicked Atletico Junior’s mascot owl as it was laying stunned after it was struck by the ball, apologised for killing a poor bird.

“My family is very worried about what happened because an entire country (Columbia) is against me. I believe what happened is regrettable and I apologised to the entire country,” he said.

Ramon Jesurum, president of Dimayor, a Colombian football league also known as the Copa Mustang, said on Monday that “the player should be severely punished for this painful, horrible act of intolerance,” reports The Telegraph.
