Ozzy Osbourne kills cats, birds during lockdown: 'good fun'

Published By Alexandra Heilbron on Apr 08, 2021

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne courtesy @ozzyosbourne instagram Ozzy Osbourne, who's known for biting the head off a bat onstage during a performance with Black Sabbath in 1982, said during a recent radio interview that he's been spending the lockdown shooting all the cats and birds that wander onto his expansive property.

Osbourne, 72, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2019, called it "good fun," adding "When I first started this thing, I could not shoot. Now there’s dead cats (and) birds every minute.”

Ozzy and his wife Sharon, 68, who has been making headlines of her own in recent weeks, live in Southern California. They have numerous dogs and cats of their own. However, he says when he begins shooting, his own pets "f*** off."

Ozzy also said shooting his rifle gets "me out of my head" and says he worries about his disease progressing during the COVID-19 lockdown, saying "When I am in my house, I worry I never am going to walk properly." He also added that  his pets have helped "keep him sane" as he isolates at home.

    He is the absolute epitome of a damned CREEP!! The sooner Parkinson's gets him --- the better!! Somebody needs to take that gun & blow his d**k off!! Looks like Karma is doing her job with that one.

    Well I'm kinda lost for words except, ozzy's comment on how his own pets keep him sane WELL maybe those cats and maybe the birds are someone else's pets I realize their on your property but come on shooting cans etc can be just as satisfying. Mother nature won't be nice to you as your killing some of her children

    What a sicko. Killing poor defenseless animals. He should be thrown away in jail and lose the key. RIP poor animals

    Really Ozzy? .... There is a special place waiting in hell for someone that shoots innocent cats and birds for fun. I wonder how you would feel if someone shot one of your little dogs. You are a miserable excuse for a human being. Just goes to show you that all the money in the world does not buy health or happiness, or sanity.

    I think he is mentally ill. What he is doing is sick and barbaric. Shame on him and his enabling racist wife. We are all in the midst of a global pandemic. We dont shoot birds and cats. Disgusting.

  6. René Perrier • 4/8/2021 10:00:37 AM

    Is anyone really surprise. Wasn't he always a moron; in fact the whole family? Yes karma gets all idiots in the end. And...why is he bragging about it?

  7. Jennifer • 4/8/2021 10:10:13 AM

    I've never forgotten that he bit the head off a live bat onstage. That's not the act of a kind human being. He is a twisted person and I hope he pays huge for this latest admission, whether it's because law enforcement comes because it's illegal to be shooting your neighbor's pets or because his fans just stop supporting him.

  8. CJ • 4/8/2021 10:11:18 AM

    What a POS! He should be charged with animal cruelty. Some people should not have guns! Fargin jackhole! WTF!

  9. Troy • 4/8/2021 10:21:55 AM

    I think it's about time someone went and shot Ozzy Osbourne. If he shot my cat, next person to show up in his yard would be me with an Uzi aimed at him.

  10. lililasagna • 4/8/2021 10:28:22 AM

    There's something seriously wrong with this poor excuse for a man

  11. Derek Beaupre • 4/8/2021 10:36:42 AM

    He's a dangerous nut job that should be isolated permanently !! I really don't know why anybody is giving this A%$hole any attention at all ??

  12. Angie • 4/8/2021 10:42:30 AM

    Is this his terrible idea of a publicity stunt? He can't be serious, can he?????

  13. DMLNG • 4/8/2021 10:45:43 AM

    He has a serious mental health problem and needs to be hospitalized............most psychopaths start off by killing animals!

  14. Lynnie C. • 4/8/2021 10:46:23 AM

    This is beyond horrible. Not that Sharon is responsible for this ridiculous behaviour but I thought she was an animal advocate. Someone needs to remove all firearms from the house.

  15. Brenda Kellen • 4/8/2021 10:47:59 AM

    I think that even if it's his property it's illegal to kill certain animals. I hope that he gets charged with animal cruelty and he goes to jail for a long time with a hefty fine. Cats will probably be found to be sentient. And birds are on the endangered list. Climate change.... Celebrities shouldn't get off Scott free for doing cruel acts. He needs a psychiatrist not a gun. It makes him feel better???? Where is his family. Probably running for cover.

    What an ---hole! I hope that Parkinsons gets you, you sick idiot! How dare you shoot the life out of defenceless animals. What is wrong with you, you sicko! Karma will get your dumb--- for sure, hopefully sooner than later!!!

  18. Kelly • 4/8/2021 11:22:30 AM

    Doesn't say much for Sharon Osbourne for marrying him in the first place. Once you stay with a guy who bites heads off bats (even if just for a concert) and have kids with him, you've lost all respect for yourself no matter how you dress and how much make-up you cake on.

  19. Niky • 4/8/2021 11:24:28 AM

    GO KARMA GO get the SOB and anyone who dares to try to help him with his Parkinson’s disease..get them too karma. Got to love that karma provides justice!

  20. TheLary • 4/8/2021 12:32:46 PM

    I'm amazed how many of you don't know that Ozzy is really hilarious and a compulsive jokester. Second of all the bat incident was a mistake as it was during one of his dramatic performances and he thought someone had thrown a rubber bat onto the stage. Let's all not lynch and/or shoot the man just because you don't get his sense of humor.

  21. April • 4/8/2021 12:41:36 PM

    All is well. Ozzy will say “ he didn’t mean to say that” he was “ joking” The Parkinson’s made him do it... all will be forgiven and swept under the rug no matter what bull shit he says.

  22. Melany • 4/8/2021 12:53:55 PM

    OML!! As if he is actually shooting the neighborhood cats and dogs!?!?!? He Lives in California for God sakes like as if he is allowed to be shooting the wildlife! Ozzy if a prankster and says things just to get a rise out of you all. I honestly can't believe all the people that have actually believed what he wrote. All of you who believed what Ozzy was saying, I have land that I am willing to sell for cheap!! Have a wonderful evening!! Stay Safe!!

  23. ben • 4/8/2021 12:59:02 PM

    les riches sont tous des criminels d une façons ou d une autres et tous le mondes est complices en donnent de la valeurs a l argent et au chose et non a la vie ...TOUS COUPABABLE

  24. Nancy Weese • 4/8/2021 1:02:18 PM

    What a moron. No more to say because there aren't any words for this confession.

  25. Peggy McPhail • 4/8/2021 1:13:36 PM

    Somebody quick.....shoot him. Despicable man.

  26. Kheft Kaligari • 4/8/2021 2:28:52 PM

    Why aren't these psychopathic animal abusers being charged for their crimes?

  27. Cedric • 4/8/2021 2:31:33 PM

    While I get why cats, cause they're mangy leeching A-holes but why beautiful birds who fly everywhere and have no territorial boundaries? Besides, I thought that possession of firearms is illegal in the state of Cali. Not to mention, hunting for sport.

  28. TD • 4/8/2021 3:02:55 PM

    He called it “good fun,” this degenerate should be behind bars. Where are the cops?? If the cops want "proof" just look at his massive property it's probably littered with dead corpses of cats and birds everywhere. It's not even legal with what Osbourne is doing. Perhaps he is over medicated?

  29. sandy • 4/8/2021 4:04:09 PM

    I'm sure he can have a shooting range in his house. How would he feel if his neighbours killed his pets for wandering on their property? F*** ozzy you were influential at one point..what happened? Good God. No respect. He should be charged woth animal cruelty. Why isn't peta harassing him?

  30. Sandra • 4/8/2021 5:23:50 PM

    F***ing dirtbag

  31. J. • 4/8/2021 6:21:27 PM

    He and his wife are pieces of sh*t. Wish somebody would get rid of the both of them.

  32. Reign • 4/8/2021 6:57:53 PM

    He's joking , isn't he ? If not , then the world would be better off without his type in it. Shame on him. I used to like him and I thought because he had animals he loved them --- sheesh what a skewed outlook and what F***ing etc as the person above stated so eloquently .

  33. DMLNG • 4/8/2021 7:21:17 PM

    Melany, if you really believe he is a prankster.........he is a very bad one. This is not funny and realistically if you're behind him, you have a problem too! Seek help and stay safe!

  34. Theresa • 4/8/2021 9:55:30 PM

    Something is wrong with that man. Anyone that kills a innocent animal is a lunatic. Especially for someone that has pets. You dont know who they belong to. If it was a wild animal that's a different story. But its someone's pet. I never really cared for him, he's kinda creepy in my opinion.

  35. Louise • 4/8/2021 10:46:54 PM

    He is a sick person. He should be arrested for animal cruelty. Where is Sharon in all this inhuman environment.

  36. Bob • 4/8/2021 11:01:30 PM

    Why is anyone still talking about this nut job. I'm surprise that he still able to hold a gun after years of burning his brain cells with drugs. He's a mental cases and should be put in a mental institution.

  37. mike hunt • 4/8/2021 11:18:55 PM

    Is this an April Fool's Day joke, or is he really a psychopath. Shane the bat he gnawed the head off of, didn't have Coronavirus. Hope he & his gold digger wife both get COVID & suffer a long slow death.

  38. joel Banineau • 4/8/2021 11:20:36 PM

    Where is animal control, or PETA? Send in Pam Anderson to give him a whack.

  39. Michael • 4/8/2021 11:54:51 PM

    Sounds like BS. Anyone who owns pets would not harm other animals. Just trying to smear Ozzy because Sharon told them to the media to F-OFF...

  40. MIKE • 4/9/2021 5:35:21 AM

    good for knowing hes having fun NOT see what happens when youtake drugs kids you turn into an NAZZI sorry imean OZZY

  41. Snepts • 4/9/2021 10:13:01 AM


  42. Arlene Schneider • 4/9/2021 10:25:29 AM

    This whole family is weird. Ozzy was a big drinker and druggie. Therefore his brain is fried. His wife knows that he's all she has with some kind of fame. I'm glad she got fired from the talk. She sickens me. I hope their empire crumbles.

  43. Evelyn • 4/9/2021 4:51:41 PM

    Why is this man not being charges with animal cruelty. He needs to do time in jail and a hefty fine

  44. Dean • 4/9/2021 5:35:26 PM

    Really?!!! Wow, I knew he was a creep, but this kind of behavior takes it to a whole new level. Maybe he will have a tremor and shoot himself in the face while loading his rifle. What an uneducated, idiot buffoon. There is a special place in hades for a narcissist like him.

  45. James • 4/9/2021 11:37:46 PM

    Man arrested in Dallas $200k.bond for killing dogs best them to death cruelty to animals SOB

  46. Colleen • 4/10/2021 12:13:31 AM

    What the #$%! ? Where is SPCA? Why has he not been charged with animal cruelty and mischief?

  47. rObd • 4/10/2021 9:04:06 AM

    you all read hes has in curable disease Osbourne, 72, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2019. He is sick he is twisted But he's the godfather of rock & roll. Keep you pets off his property and you'll have no problems then. The man is a legend just like My man Donald Trump is a legend. ozzy should've ran for President of the United States of America where we have freedom speech. Ozzy will have to get a small game and wildlife license to hunt in California. Lol

  48. Mike • 4/11/2021 1:31:23 AM

    Basically, he's confessing to crimes here. Will he be arrested and charged? Or will nothing happen because he's rich and famous? Such crimes are not taken seriously enough, and this is a serious problem in too many places. In Canada, animal cruelty is neither investigated or punished to a proper extent - of course not, this is Canada! Our so called justice system is pathetic and detrimental to animals and law-abiding humans. Just don't hurt animals or people; buy a cat or dog if you want them; and demand criminal justice reform from our elected officials.

  49. Dar • 4/12/2021 11:07:33 PM

    Ozzy- you are a true bastard! Killing defenseless animals for what?!?!. Scare them off with a horn, whistle, clap your hands- just like any kindergarten student. You are absolutely sickening and will be begging on your own death bed for mercy when the time comes. Animals will be the winners in the end when you are get yours.....

  50. Dar • 4/12/2021 11:11:41 PM

    Oh "rOBd", you are fortunately, not worth the time to type anything with comments like that and having a boyfriend like Trump.. too easy....

  51. LW • 4/13/2021 5:51:22 PM

    Die Ozzy Die! Your time is up! Just Die!

  52. Pat • 4/17/2021 3:05:12 AM

    Stick it in your ear, Ozzy.
