When animals furries attack

Ah, where else but Japan could an incident like a dude in a Winnie-the-Pooh costume assaulting and robbing people on a city street occur?
Masayuki Ishikawa was hanging out on a Tokyo street corner after midnight last month while wearing the cuddly costume, accompanied by two friends dressed as a mouse and a panther, when he took offence at being stared at, police said.

"It's uncommon to see people dressed up like this, so the victims were watching them. Then the perpetrator came up and said 'What are you staring at?'" a police spokesman said.
And why were these guys hanging around in animal costumes? If the spokesman is to believed, it's because they were out of clean clothes. They got about $160 from their victims, so I guess they would have had enough for a trip to the laundromat.
