Not Florida Felons Report

© 2009 Albert A Rasch

At least I can say Floridians aren't the only scofflaws and miscreants.

Teens Plead Guilty to Killing 109 Coots

"Two juvenile teen brothers from Laporte, Minnesota and another juvenile teen from Akeley have been fined $1,600 and placed on probation after pleading guilty on Feb. 4 to killing 109 American Coots. Coots are defined as migratory game birds and protected by both state and federal law."

They plead guilty and at least they knew they had done wrong.

It’s an unfortunate incident, but hopefully a learning experience for these young men,” Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Conservation Officer Paul Parthun said.

The whole report here.
