Men Accused of Forcing Baby Alligator to Drink Beer Must be Harshly Punished

Target: Steve Hollis, Criminal District Attorney of Jasper, South Carolina

Goal: Harshly punish men who allegedly forced a baby alligator to drink beer and posted photos of it online.

Two men reportedly forced an 18-20 inch long baby alligator to drink beer, and then posted photos of it to Snapchat. The photos show the men forcing the baby alligator’s mouth open as they poured beer down the animal’s throat. One man can be seen holding the alligator by the neck with one hand, which appears to be squeezing the animal roughly. In another photo, a man can be seen blowing smoke into the alligator’s mouth. The men told wildlife investigators that they found the baby alligator trying to walk across a road. They also said that they released the animal into a nearby pond.

People who saw the photos online notified the natural resource center. The men in the photos, 20-year-old Joseph Andrew Floyd and 21-year-old Zachary Lloyd Brown, are now facing misdemeanor charges. According to the SCDNR Alligator Program Coordinator, Jay Butfiloski, alligators are listed as threatened and are therefore protected under state law. This innocent animal who was only minding his own business could’ve been killed in this senseless attempt for attention. Please add your signature to the petition below to demand that these men are harshly punished so that this cruelty never happens again.

    FREE PUBLICITY WELL DESERVED FOR 20-year-old JOSEPH ANDREW FLOYD and and 21-year-old ZACHARY LLOYD BROWN.

    Harshly punish these 2 useless air breathers who “allegedly” FORCED a baby alligator to drink beer and posted photos of it online. In one photo, a man can be seen blowing smoke into the alligator’s mouth.

  8. Wendy Morrison says:

    These 2 fools need to be fed to tbe alligators while still alive where there feel the torture as this innocent baby alligator suffered.

  9. Tina shurtleff says:

    Crack down on this rampant animal abuse. Ignoramuses. Misdemeanor my foot. Throw these disgusting morons in jail

  10. these two scumbags need to be taken to the alligator sanctuary and thrown
    into the water with the alligators. There will be no attempted rescue. These
    scumbags will never bother another animal.

  11. They should be forced to work for free taking care of crocodiles (if they get clever and get eaten oh well nothing was lost in fact we should thank the crocos), for a while and than some other hard jobs for more than 1 year, like in old times prisoners use to do, with a very small amount of money for them. But to give them to alligators like some people are saying sounds a good option.
