Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries enforcement agents cited a Laplace man and a juvenile for an alleged cruelty to animal violation on March 30.

Agents cited Sylvest Oubre, 18, and a juvenile for simple cruelty to animals.

Agents received multiple complaints about a video on social media showing Oubre kicking an Anhinga, a slender waterbird, while the juvenile recorded the incident. The juvenile then posted the video on social media.

Agents made contact with the juvenile and Oubre and they said they were fishing in the Belle Terre Country Club pond when they hooked the Anhinga and that is when the incident took place.

Simple cruelty to animals brings up to a $1,000 fine and six months in jail.
