A man is facing animal cruelty charges after he allegedly grabbed a duck by the neck so he could take a picture with it. Barrie police witnessed two men drinking and causing a disturbance at Johnston’s Beach on Sunday afternoon. That’s when officers saw one of the men grab the duck by the neck. The first man gave officers a fake last name and was charged for obstructing justice. Investigators later found out he was wanted by police in Thunder Bay. The second man, a 34 year old from Barrie, was charged with cruelty to animals and failing to comply with recognizance. Police say the duck wasn’t harmed.
