A Florida man has been arrested after he kicked multiple swans and a sleeping duck while practicing karate.
Rocco Mantella, 34, was charged with cruelty to animals after he reportedly kicked the swans “as hard as possible.” He then moved on to kick a duck that appeared to be sleeping. The animals’ conditions are being actively monitored by authorities.
The police report claims that Mantella also laughed after a woman gasped while seeing him kick the birds. He is being held on $1,000 bail.
