On October 10, Eric Cuellar and Justin Teixeira, both reportedly law students at the University of California–Berkeley, were allegedly seen on camera chasing a 14-year-old exotic bird into a patch of trees at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas and then emerging with the bird’s body and severed head as they laughed.
Both Cuellar and Teixeira are now facing felony charges of conspiracy and willful, malicious torture and killing of wildlife.
