Teens That Ran Over Ducks On Great Sacandaga Lake Arrested
First of all, the act alone was very, very cruel. Beyond that, it was a massive sign of immaturity and disrespect. Here is what will happen to the teens.
A week or so ago, when it was reported that some ducks had been run over on the Great Sacandaga Lake, I was appalled. After seeing the video footage of the people on jet skis running them down in the water I was more than appalled, I was repulsed. Thankfully, justice is swiftly being served.
The two teenagers who took part in the disgusting act were indeed arrested and beyond that may face a fine of $250 a piece. That I disagree with, it should be way, way more. These innocent animals were victims to kids who have a lack of respect for animals. I don't care what the animal is, that was horrible.
