On the weekend, over 40 ducks were discovered dead near Delray Feed and Supply in Delray Beach. The owners of the business were shocked and disgusted by the illegal dumping of animal remains. Michelle Cohen, the owner, took photos and reported the incident to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
The remains included at least 40 duck carcasses, with evidence suggesting that they had been shot. The owners are confident that the animals came from a variety of species, but they declined to touch them further out of respect for the animals. Surveillance video is currently being reviewed in search of any potential leads.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is conducting an investigation into the illegal dumping. Michelle Cohen, who owns the business, supports hunting but only under certain conditions. She hopes for a resolution to this issue.
