On Tuesday morning, in the Marbella Lakes community, of Naples, Florida, a resident faces animal cruelty charges after authorities contend he drowned five ducklings in his swimming pool. According to a neighbor who called 911, she caught the man in the act.

NbcNews2 reports the Collier County deputies responded to the call from Rita Krill, who stated she was frightened when she heard chirps and screams coming from the next door neighbor’s back yard. When she went over to investigate, Ms. Krill saw the man using his skimmer to force the ducklings under water. She confronted the man:

“He looked me right in the eye and said, ‘I killed them. I don’t need any pets.’ I just ran in the house and said, ‘I’m calling the police.’ It was just heartbreaking,” Ms. Krill stated.

The case is now being investigated by the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission. No charges have been filed at this time. Neighbors hope this man is punished to the fullest extent of the law.

    What type of sadistic scum do we have living in this country? Could have easily taken the ducklings out and left them for the mama duck to find them. Heartless non humane to do this. Hope his family throw him out and he is harrassed by his neighbors.

    WTF!!!! He needs to be charged and drown in a pool just like he did to those innocent babies. I hope he gets karma.

    WHY are charges not filed? Exactly what do authorities need, a damn video? Ms. Krill called the police and is an eyewitness to this maggot’s cruelty – how much more does Naples Florida need? Just keep dragging your feet which is par for the course when animal cruelty is involved. This bastard should be hogtied and dumped in his own pool – THAT would be justice.

    Why have NO charges been filed? Certainly it must be against the law to kill ducklings! If you don’t want them in your pool than call someone to remove them! This POS needs to go to jail and be fined, there is no excuse for what he did. I pray for the neighbor of this POS, I wouldn’t want to be living near him!

    And I wonder how many times he’s done this kind of thing and HASN’T been caught?

    Aside from cruelty charges, the creep’s name and business, if any, needs to be published and circulated to a full-scale mass boycott and shunning can be done to drive him into the poorhouse. Bastard.

    Personally, I wish vigilantes would sneak into his house and tie 50-pound cement blocks to his feet, drive him out to the ocean and dump him.
