You’ve got some beautiful rare butterflies, huh?

It would be a real shame if some of them... went missing.

Ex-body builder Phillip Cullen is being accused of taking specimens of the large blue butterfly, the United Kingdom’s “rarest butterfly,” according to the Guardian.

Cullen’s a broad-chested muscular guy with a full head of brown and white hair and a gold earring—not the first bloake who’d come to mind when you think about a butterfly preserve.

But back in June of 2015, someone claimed to have spotted him, climbing a padlocked gate into a nature preserve in Gloucestershire.

They didn’t say he was frolicking exactly, but... chasing a large blue butterfly, wielding what looked like a child’s shrimping net, as his friend peed on a tree.
