Men Accused of Forcing Baby Alligator to Drink Beer Must be Punished

Target: Steve Hollis, Criminal District Attorney of Jasper, South Carolina

Goal: Harshly punish men who allegedly forced a baby alligator to drink beer and posted photos of it online.

Two men reportedly forced an 18-20 inch long baby alligator to drink beer, and then posted photos of it to Snapchat. The photos show the men forcing the baby alligator’s mouth open as they poured beer down the animal’s throat. One man can be seen holding the alligator by the neck with one hand, which appears to be squeezing the animal roughly. In another photo, a man can be seen blowing smoke into the alligator’s mouth. The men told wildlife investigators that they found the baby alligator trying to walk across a road. They also said that they released the animal into a nearby pond.

People who saw the photos online notified the natural resource center. The men in the photos, 20-year-old Joseph Andrew Floyd and 21-year-old Zachary Lloyd Brown are now facing misdemeanor charges. According to the SCDNR Alligator Program Coordinator, Jay Butfiloski, alligators are listed as threatened and are therefore protected under state law. This innocent animal who was only minding his own business could’ve been killed in this senseless attempt for attention. Please add your signature to the petition below to demand that these men are harshly punished so that this cruelty never happens again.


Dear Mr. Hollis,

Two men reportedly forced a baby alligator to drink beer and posted photos of their cruel actions on Snapchat. In one photo, a man can be seen blowing smoke into the alligator’s mouth.

It seems these men used this innocent animal in a cruel way just to get attention online. What this poor baby alligator endured was horrific. We, the undersigned, are calling on you to take a stand against this senseless animal cruelty. Please see to it that these men are harshly punished.

  2. Jaime Perez says:

    Oh S. Carolina, that explains it all. These two inbreds need to wiped off the face of the earth! This was an innocent baby they were torturing. But thank goodness they were “stupid” enough to post it-they got caught! Ass wipes.

  3. Eva Cantu says:


  4. We need strict laws and the HARSHEST punishment for all animal abusers. It`s time governments started to take this seriously

  5. Eugene W Sengstake Jr says:

    I hate to see these sick bastards called “men”. Our society seems to be full of this garbage now days. Too bad somebody didn’t deal with them on the spot. But then when dealing with these sickos – it would have just made them mad and they would have probably escalated their activities to something worse. Misdemeanor charges??? They ought to be thrown in jail/prison for a couple of years – but chances are that wouldn’t do much good anyway – – –
