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.
