In Palm City, Florida, two men have been charged with animal cruelty after a video they posted to social media showed them pouring beer into a small alligator’s mouth.
No kidding on this one; Timothy Kepke, 27, and Noah Osborne, 22, face charges for unlawfully taking an alligator and animal cruelty. According to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), the men caught the young alligator on August 26 and recorded the cruel incident on Snapchat.
The video showed Kepke holding the gator, taunting it and allowing it to bite his right forearm. When the gator released its bite, Kepke poured Coors beer into its mouth.
TcpalmNews reports Kepke admitted to drinking beer that evening, but denies he was intoxicated although he may have been high. Both men told the investigating officer the alligator was not harmed and they released it back into the water.
Check out the video.
