Karie Lindgren, a 36-year-old Florida woman, was jailed Saturday after she allegedly killed a duck after the animal rejected her advances.
According to police, Lindgren became angry when she tried to lure a duck towards her with a piece of candy, but the duck refused to come to her.
Witnesses say Lindgren “stalked the duck” in an attempt to win the animal’s favor, but the duck would have no part of her.
That’s when she allegedly got into a car, drove across a lawn at a high rate of speed, and struck the animal with her vehicle.
Officers who arrived on the scene found the dead duck laying in a driveway.
Lindgren was booked into the Pinellas County Jail and charged with animal cruelty. She was released after posting $5,000 bail.
