A homeless man was sentenced today to 60 days in jail for choking a pelican to death because he was hungry.
The District Attorney's Office said Sergio Alvarez, 30, caught the bird near the Malibu pier on Aug. 22.
About 5:50 p.m. that day, a bystander flagged down a sheriff's deputy and said a man was choking a pelican.

He now has three hots and a cot for the next 60 days.
Such is life under Obamanomics ... go figure.
Pelican ... I’ll bet it tastes like Malibu chicken.
I’d rather have fed this turd to the pelican than vice versa. Probably high at the time. I hate the homeless here in L.A., absolutely hate them. I stood at the bus stop just the other day and watched some bum shell his boiled eggs and throw the shells into the street. Trash can was just a couple feet away, but no, he’d rather throw his trash in the street. At that moment, I’d have cheerfully fed him to Uday Hussein’s dogs. Alive.
He should have claimed self-defense.
I grew up in the area (Agoura Hills) and my favorite hangout was Zuma Beach back in the day.
I keep to myself in Temecula now ... and commute to San Diego. I try to stay away from LA as much as possible.
LOL, that’s exactly what I was thinking. :)
This around the 3rd time an article about this guy was posted
Sounds like 3 hots and a cot is what he was looking for. Funny how the Californication gummint gives the dirt bags what they want.
The homeless man said it tastes somewhere between a bald eagle and a whooping crane.
Well he gets three squares a day for the next couple months.
Give a man a meal and you feed him for a day.
Teach a man to choke a pelican and you feed him for 60 days.
if this was a wild pelican and not privately owned, I would vote to acquit
I changed my mind.
Homeless all get food stamps
Years ago when going through school I worked night desk clerk at a motel near Tampa. Guy came in to the restaurant there and ordered the best dinner we had then came to the desk and told me he had no money and to call the cops.
I told him to get the hell out of there.
It was february and cold.
He thanked me and promptly walked across the street, picked up a cinder block and threw it through a shell gas station window,.
He wanted to get in from the cold and get a few meals.
I’d heard L.A. was why they invented Neutron bombs.
Do away with the crazies and leave Zuma alone.
What a great beach Zuma is.
Terry Pratchett say:
Build a man a fire, you keep him warm for a day.
Set a man on fire, you keep him warm for the rest of his life.
Check this out. You can get 180 days of meals for stealing two candy bars in Ocala Florida — 180 days — and you don’t have to wrestle with a pelican to get it either.
When first published in 1970, Stations of the Lost won the C. Wright Mills Award for Best Book in the Area of Social Problems. The study considers the Skid Row alcoholic from two points of view, that of the alcoholic himself and that of the agents of social control who treat him. A major discovery of Wiseman's research was that Skid Row men spend only about one third of the year on Skid Row. The rest of the time is spent "making the loop"going from Skid Row to city jail, to county jail, to the state mental hospital, to the missions, and back to Skid Row. While these facilities are designed to handle or rehabilitate Skid Row men, they are actually used by these men as a means of survival.
That made me spit my water out at my computer!
The cops couldn't catch a peacock the other day....
(You got to be quick enough to catch it by the legs)
Here in Florida I’ve had a chance to add to that through personal observation, the snow bird skid row guy.
Skid row weather followers. Go south for the winter north for the summer. Just like them rich folks do.
He should get pelican poop cleanup detail for a year .. at least the pelican community can sleep soundly, for 60 days anyway.. once ya choked a pelican, a chicken or pigeon will never do again. reckun the recidivist rate is pretty high.. or maybe not. ;-)
how much time did Pee Wee Herman get for choking his chicken?
Disgusting. Shame on you.
Two bits says he’s an Obama supporter and was polled by the LA Times putting Bam ahead of Romney.
[Bad pun! ;^)]
Heh. I’m on the wrong thread. Bummer. Oopsie.
If this hungry transient had been caught in Malibu choking his chicken instead, the liberal locals would have left him alone ...
If this hungry transient had been caught in San Francisco choking his chicken, a parade would have formed behind him.
I hate the homeless here in L.A., absolutely hate them.
Obviously, you suffer from “Hobophobia.”
I do indeed. I used to feel some sympathy, till I got to see them up close. I ride the bus, so I get a good long look at their behavior. Most of them have exactly the life they deserve.
