Man rips head off duck, saying "I'm hungry"
On Saturday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that early Saturday morning, a man allegedly cornered a duck at the Embassy Suites hotel in downtown St. Paul, and tore its head off. The hotel keeps tame ornamental ducks in it's large, central lobby atrium.
The St .Paul Pioneer Press also reported the story, and identified the man as Scott D. Clark, a businessman from Denver. The Star Tribune did not publish Clark's name, stating that "The Star Tribune generally does not identify suspects until they are formally charged."
Clark, 26, is being held on suspicion of felony animal cruelty and is scheduled to appear in court Monday, the Star Tribune and Pioneer Press both reported. Both papers also reported the police believe Clark was intoxicated.
