Update: 3 teens arrested for killing baby duck with rock

In Henderson, Nevada, three teens were arrested on Wednesday morning after a disturbing video posted just days ago to social media showed the kids appearing to have killed a baby duck with a rock. The violent video caused outrage and a demand for an immediate investigation and appropriate charges against the youths involved in this alleged animal cruelty.

According to FoxNews, Henderson police received the video one week ago showing a young person using a rock and killing the baby duck that had been taken from its mother at a local park. Henderson Police Office spokesperson Scott Williams stated the three teens confessed.

“I think it was just an example of teenagers making horrible decisions,” Williams stated.

The teens are students at Green Valley High School and face charges of animal cruelty. They have been arrested and booked into the Clark County Juvenile Detention Center where they have also been charged with removing migratory birds.

    Teenagers making horrible decisions? Well then lets give them a punishment that will make them think twice before they do again. Taking a life of any living animal is beyond a “horrible decision”! If they have no regard for a living animal then humans will not be far behind!

    Wooo Hooooo!!! Make examples out of these little twits!! Animal cruelty is NOT funny, it is NOT fun and it is not something to make you look macho!! You look like the monsters you are, taking a baby animal from its mother and torturously killing it! I think the parents should be fined for raising such creeps!

      I agree with you. However, the parents today are, for the most part, devoid of any Humanity so there’s no way they can teach it to their offspring. And it’s sad but it’s only going to get worse. When these kids grow up they’re going to have kids and the cycle will continue getting worse with each generation.
