A Fayette County man is facing animal cruelty charges after photos had been circulating on social media showing a golfer holding two dead ducks at Duck Hollow Golf Course in Uniontown, Pennsylvania. According to CbsPittsburgh,  state police filed charges against Josh Jenkins-Howenstein, also known as “Bubbie” Jenkins, of Uniontown.

The incident happened on Saturday morning after a golf cart struck and killed the two ducks; not just two random ducks who had wandered onto the golf course. These two white ducks had been closely bonded and often followed golfers around while playing the course:

“They were residents of the golf course, and they were well-known throughout the golf course community,” stated State Trooper  Robert Broadwater.

When a photo appeared with a golfer holding up the two ducks, the manager of the golf course referred the disturbing situation to the police. The person who took the photo has since stated he and his family have been receiving death threats, and even though he admitted to having taken the photo, he was not the person who killed the ducks. By the time he found them, the ducks were already dead. That golfer has since been “cleared of any wrongdoing.” He now regrets ever have taken the photo.

“We had two ducks. The ducks and all of the wildlife are a part of what makes Duck Hollow a special place,” stated one of the golf course officials.

What a sad day for our wildlife when they are mowed down by an alleged abusive person. Animal cruelty charges are pending.

Rest in peace wildlife. We are sorry that humans let you down.

    I just can’t figure out with this younger generation is what they think is so funny? Posing with two dead ducks that were a popular pair at the golf course is funny?!?! Post it on Facebook even funnier! What is this world coming to? I don’t think they will ever catch who ever killed these two ducks unless a member from the club comes forward and tells who did it. This world is going to HELL in a hand-basket!

    If he is so innocent, why didn’t he just report the dead ducks instead of taking a picture of them? I have a feeling he knows more than he is telling!

    Well…. if you are STUPID enough to think dead animals are so cool you need to take a picture with them…..YOU ARE AS STUPID, IDIOTIC AND HEARTLESS as the person who killed them. What an idiotic idea…. you thought this was funny and cool or you wouldn’t have taken a picture!! YOU DO NOT DESERVE TO GET OFF…. this should be a serious fine and violation!! When you drop dead…maybe someone will hold you up by your freaking neck and snap a picture!

    I hope someone follows through on those threats – that would be justice for two innocent animals.
