Two South Carolina men charged after forcing alligator to drink beer

first_img SHARE Author: CNN Two South Carolina men charged after forcing alligator to drink beer Published: May 27, 2017 6:48 AM EDT Updated: May 27, 2017 8:11 AM EDT center_img RIDGELAND, SC (CNN) Two South Carolina men each face a harassment charge after pictures surfaced on social media showing them pouring beer down the throat of an alligator, authorities said.Joseph Andrew Floyd Jr., 20, and Zachary Lloyd Brown, 21, both of Ridgeland, are accused of harassing wildlife, the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources said in a news release.The incident took place on Wednesday in Jasper County, located in the coastal region in the southernmost part of the state.The men admitted to investigators that they picked up the juvenile alligator after they saw it crossing a road, forced beer down its throat and watched it swim away in a nearby pond, according to the release.Pictures posted on social media alerted officials the next day.“We started receiving a lot of e-mails and phone calls about this. People had taken screen shots from Snapchat accounts,” the agency’s spokeswoman Kyndel McConchie told CNN.In one of the six photos obtained by CNN from authorities, the alligator’s neck is being squeezed and a beer can is pressed against its snout. The text on the photo says “Gator Shotgun.”Other photos show beer being dripped into its mouth while its neck is held tightly. Another picture shows smoke being blown onto the face of the gator.Besides the state misdemeanor charge of harassing wildlife, Floyd and Brown also face a maximum fine of $300.There is federal protection in place to ensure alligators are legally harvested for international trade. But for a case like this, no federal protection applies, the Department of Natural Resources said.“Alligators are protected under state law and even federal law where they are still listed as threatened solely due to their similarity of appearance to other endangered crocodilians worldwide,” SCDNR Alligator Program Coordinator Jay Butfiloski added.The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources posted the photos on Twitter:Two men have been charged with harassment of wildlife after posting photos to social media. https://t.co/yRJr2fkLxb #SCDNR pic.twitter.com/eMOK3jl3md— SCDNR (@SCDNR) May 26, 2017 Do you see a typo or an error?

UEFA Nations League Draws: England To Battle Belgium Baring Coronavirus Spread

first_imgEngland has been drawn to face Belgium, Denmark and Iceland in the UEFA Nations League after the draws were conducted on Tuesday.The Three Lions faced Roberto Martinez’s Belgium side twice at the 2018 World Cup, once at the end of the group phase and again in the third-place play-off, losing on both occasions.They are due to face the Danes in a friendly later this month – coronavirus permitting – while they famously lost to Iceland in Nice at Euro 2016.Wales and the Republic of Ireland will meet again after they were drawn in the same group.The other sides in Group B4 are first-time Euro finalists Finland and Bulgaria.Scotland, who are due to take on Israel in a Euro 2020 qualification play-off later this month, will also face them in the 2020-21 Nations League. Steve Clarke’s men will also face the Czech Republic and Slovakia in Group B2.Northern Ireland were drawn in Group B1 alongside Austria, Norway and Romania.The group matches will be played between September and November this year.UEFA Nations League FormatThere are 55 member states in UEFA, following Kosovo’s membership being accepted in 2016.The UEFA Nations League splits these nations into four leagues: A, B, C and D. For the original format, these divisions contained countries based on their coefficient score – so the best teams in Group A, right down to the lowest-ranked in Group D.Within each league, there are four smaller groups of three or four teams; so League A has smaller groups, A1, A2, A3 and A4, for example.The winner of each of League A’s groups goes on to play knockout fixtures to determine the UEFA Nations League champion. Below that, however, relegation and promotion come into play.The bottom-placed team in each group gets relegated to the league below, whilst the top-placed team gets promoted to the league above.Due to the UEFA Nations League expanding its groups for this edition though, no one was relegated last time around. The teams that were promoted do, however, get to jump up a league.LEAGUE AGroup A1: Netherlands, Italy, Bosnia and Herzegovina, PolandGroup A2: England, Belgium, Denmark, IcelandGroup A3: Portugal (holders), France, Sweden, CroatiaGroup A4: Switzerland, Spain, Ukraine, GermanyLEAGUE BGroup B1: Austria, Norway, Northern Ireland, RomaniaGroup B2: Czech Republic, Scotland, Slovakia, IsraelGroup B3: Russia, Serbia, Turkey, HungaryGroup B4: Wales, Finland, Republic of Ireland, BulgariaLEAGUE CGroup C1: Montenegro, Cyprus, Luxembourg, AzerbaijanGroup C2: Georgia, North Macedonia, Estonia, ArmeniaGroup C3: Greece, Kosovo, Slovenia, MoldovaGroup C4: Albania, Belarus, Lithuania, KazakhstanLEAGUE DGroup D1: Faroe Islands, Latvia, Andorra, MaltaGroup D2: Gibraltar, Liechtenstein, San Marino2020 UEFA Nations League ScheduleMatchday 1: 3–5 September 2020Matchday 2: 6–8 September 2020Matchday 3: 8–10 October 2020Matchday 4: 11–13 October 2020Matchday 5: 12–14 November 2020Matchday 6: 15–17 November 2020Finals: 2/3 & 6 June 2021 (venue tbc)Relegation play-offs: 24/25 & 28/29 March 2022RelatedEuro 2020: Portugal Drawn With France And Germany In Group of DeathNovember 30, 2019In “Europe”World Champions Germany Handed Tough UEFA National League FixturesJanuary 24, 2018In “Europe”Europa League: PL Giants Arsenal, Chelsea Handed Tricky Group Stage FixturesAugust 31, 2018In “England”last_img read more
