    Default Motorist deliberately ran over mother duck as she walked with her ducklings

    An American motorist ran over and killed a mother duck as she walked her 12 ducklings across a shopping centre, a court heard.
    Joshua Linhares turned his car in the direction of the birds and drove straight at the mother mallard.
    A jury in New Bedford, Massachusetts, yesterday took just 15 minutes to convict the 25-year-old of animal cruelty.


    Orphaned: Joshua Linhares was convicted of animal cruelty after running over the mother of these 12 ducklings

    Assistant District Attorney T.J. Rebello told the town's district court: 'The high rate of speed he drives off in shows this was something more than an accident.'
    Convicted: Joshua Linhares claimed he did not see the ducks

    Jurors were shown a CCTV video taken from Macyís in the Dartmouth Mall, which captured the moment Linharesí car struck the mother mallard duck as she crossed a car park with her ducklings.
    The motorist claimed he did not see the birds when he drove into the middle of a three-way intersection last June.
    After striking the duck, he said he slowed down and then drove away without stopping because he panicked.
    'I was nervous. I didnít know what to do,' Linhares told the court.
    But a woman shopper who saw the incident said the driver 'turned sharply' and accelerated towards the ducks.
    The mother mallard had been nesting for at least five years in a retention pond in Dartmouth town centre, an animal control officer said.
    Prosecutors had called for Linhares to spend a year in jail, but he was sentenced to 12 months probation.
    The orphaned ducklings were temporarily adopted by a Westport family until they were released into the wild.

    Aw, poor little ducklings...

    I'm glad it went to court and all but they should have given him time in prison. Sick bastard.

    I could not have said it better myself.

    Insofar as animal cruelty is concerned, I strongly believe in an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.

    I wish I had a bulldozer to run over that bastid with!

    This made me laugh..sorry. What an asshole. I feel like shit when I accidentally hit some small animal like a squirrel with my car. And he purposedly killed not just a duck, but the mother duck of all those ducklings. Dirty fucker. Will probably end up molesting children or as a serial killer.

    And this guy looks fucking semi-retarded(not mentally challenged like the guys I work with) but just fucking slack-jawed semi-fucking-retarded.
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!

    The longer I live, the more I hate people. What is wrong with some people? Honestly, I can't get over the sadistic stuff that some do.

    That said, I would love to see him run over, again and again and again.

    I hear ya, sistah. The more time I spend alone with my parrots, the more I want to shrink away from humans...save for the people here, of course, and Mr. P.
