...you sick bas***ds.
I believe the fine is $500 per bird, but can be increased due to certain circumstances. In 2009 Exxon Mobil paid nearly $7000 per bird for negligently allowing bird to die by not screening off waste-water pits at natural gas wells. A man who was trying to kill coyotes but negligently poisoned three hawks and three turkey vultures in Kentucky was fined $5000.
Here's hoping that they find the people responsible for murdering these pelicans and fine them to the point of being totally destitute. A few years in prison would be in order as well.
There is absolutely NO justification for this behavior - NONE!
