Punish Teenagers Who Tortured and Killed Pelican

Target: Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi

Goal: Demand punishment for group of teenagers who cruelly tortured and killed a wild pelican

A wild brown pelican was sadistically tortured by a group of Florida teenagers before it was suffocated by the smoke of one of the teens’ e-cigarette. Liz Barraco, the spokeswoman of the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, says that one boy aged 17 has been identified to be the instigator of the cruel attack.  All the details from the attack have yet to be revealed, but Barraco says that several teenagers were involved.

The pelican was forcibly held down and the teens blew smoke from an e-cigarette into its beak and eyes. They eventually clamped the pelican’s beak shut multiple times, and since pelicans do not have nostrils, they cannot breathe if their mouths are closed. Sadly, this act resulted in the pelican’s death during the night.

The entire incident was captured on surveillance camera and the incriminating footage will be released after a scheduled court hearing. The main instigator has been charged with violating the federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act, which is a second-degree misdemeanor. For adults, this charge would lead to a maximum penalty of $500 and 2 months of jail time, but since the culprit is a minor, he will most likely be enrolled in a diversion program.

Brown pelicans used to be protected as an endangered species, but the population bounced back after the banning of DDT pesticides. Unfortunately, since these birds are large and easily caught, they are still frequent victims of humans. Several pelicans have been discovered with their pouches cut, which renders them incapable of eating. This investigation has yet to be solved. The case of the pelican savagely tortured and killed by a group of teenagers, however, can be closed. Please sign this petition to ensure that the teenagers who committed this heinous crime will be brought to justice and punished.


Dear Pam Bondi,

Brown pelicans have made a remarkable recovery over the years once the DDT pesticide was banned. However, other threats to the species still remain. Pelicans have been mysteriously attacked on numerous occasions by humans. Do not let this become a massive trend. We have to continue protecting the species, even if their population has stabled.

Recently, teenagers were caught on camera torturing a brown pelican by suffocating it with smoke from an e-cigarette. Although the main instigator has been charged, the other participants have yet to be held accountable. Please make sure that all the perpetrators are sufficiently punished for their crimes.

  1. Pieces of low-life sh*t who could care less…..this is what they are made of….I will guarantee they are beyond help or change.

  2. For adults, this charge would lead to a maximum penalty of $500 and 2 months of jail time, but since the culprit is a minor, he will most likely be enrolled in a diversion program?????? WTF is wrong here???? That is making OK to torture and kill !!!! NOT A GOOD EXAMPLE TO SET !!!!

  3. Any human being that resorts to torturing and killing any live creature for kicks should be punished to the full extent of the law. These sick people need to be taught to respect all God’s creatures.

  4. Everyone knows these are future murderers…what do all murderers begin as? Animal abusers! I’m starting to dislike Florida more and more. Greyhound racing? Now allowing this?

    If there is a god, he would NOT allow this devils spawn to be born at all.
    Only the devil, which is in sooo many people, causes this sort of treatment of Animals & innocent people. They are nothing but ROTTEN TO THE CORE, EVIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. They deserve to be in jail and some big cocks shoved up their asses!
