In St. Petersburg, Florida, a woman accused of kicking a mother duck who had been protecting her babies from a dog attack, was arrested on Friday. Bonnie Sue Nave, 59, faces charges of animal cruelty.
Pinellas County Sheriff’s officials stated the dogs killed one baby duckling while Nave repeatedly kicked the mother duck to protect her dogs. Deputies reported while the mother duck tried to stop the dogs from hurting her ducklings, Nave kicked her “several times” so her two dogs could continue killing the duckling.
According to the Miami Herald, two witnesses saw the attack; Nave didn’t deny it, however she told authorities she thought the ducks were considered an invasive species.
Nave has been released on a $5,000 bond.
