A Florida man’s house was raided after police believe he posted a video of himself harassing a pair of Florida panther cubs, which are an endangered species.
Police believe Javier Torres, of Miami-Dade, is the man in the video that went up on YouTube. The video has since been removed, but it prompted federal and state wildlife officers to search the homes of Torres and a second man, Alfredo Lopez De Queralta, WPLG reported.
Torres has yet to be charged, according to police. De Queralta is thought to have committed “wildlife violations,” but the investigation continues. De Queralta was charged with possession of a controlled substance after the search warrant was excuted, police said.
If convicted, penalties include a fine up to a $100,000 and a year in prison, WPLG reported.
