DELRAY BEACH, Fla., Nov. 28 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said a man is facing animal cruelty charges after allegedly drunkenly shooting ducks from atop an apartment complex roof.

Delray Beach police said Scott Jensen, 48, maintenance supervisor at Delray Lake Apartments, used a high-powered pellet gun to shoot the ducks from atop a roof at the complex Nov. 19 because he was tired of cleaning up their messes, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Wednesday.

Police said Jensen killed at least two ducks.

"The defendant confessed to shooting Muscovy ducks from the roof and showed no remorse in doing so," the police report said.

"The defendant, who appeared intoxicated, stated that he would continue to shoot the ducks to rid the property of them."

Jensen was arrested and charged with animal cruelty.
