CHALMETTE, La. (AP) - A St. Bernard Parish man was arrested
Monday after sheriff's deputies said he stole a duck from a public
park and planned to eat it.
The Sheriff's Office said Ashmeer Tahir, 38, of Chalmette was
booked with theft of an animal after someone saw him take a
muscovie duck from Sidney Torres Park. A deputy found Tahir at his
home with a duck inside a bucket in his van, authorities said.
Deputies said Tahir told them he intended to eat the animal.
The duck was returned to the park and set free.
