Chinese woman arrested for stomping on sea turtle nest
MIAMI — A Chinese woman was arrested by Miami Beach police on Saturday morning for being a cold, heartless hag and charged with molesting or harassing marine turtles or their eggs.
According to the Miami Herald, 41-year-old Yaqun Lu, who is currently living in Michigan, was seen by police and bystanders stomping all over the nest with her bare stanky-old feet.
The Miami Herald reported that the nest was in a closed-off, protected area ringed by a double perimeter of eight wooden stakes and yellow tape.
There was also a sign that said "Do Not Disturb" posted by the nest.
So what did Lu do?
She walked up to the nest, grabbed a wooden stake and started jabbing at the nest and then proceed to step all over the nest like a truly worthless human being.
According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, sea turtles are federally protected by the U.S. Endangered Species Act of 1973 and Florida statutes that make it illegal to harm or harass sea turtles, their nests or hatchlings.
According to the Miami Herald report, Lu was taken to jail and is being held on a $5,000 bond.
Miami Beach po po said the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office and the Chinese consulate in Houston were notified of Lu's arrest.
And as for the turtle eggs?
Police say they were undamaged by Lu's despicable act.
