Costa Rica authorities are investigating an alleged officer of the Fuerza Publica (police) for decapitating a turtle in a video circulating the social media.
The video, titled “la sopita del mes” (soup of the month), shows a man in what appears an official issued police t-shirt, cutting off the head of a turtle with a machete.
Juan José Andrade, director of the Fuerza Publica, said in a television interview that the t-shirt worn by the man in the video appears to be police issued.
This is not the first time for man who identifies himself as Suárez to be seen in evidence of contact with animals. Post on social media are photos of Suárez with lizards, roosters and even a pig dressed in a shirt and shorts/
Andrade assures that the man, if he is an police official, will face administrative actions against him that include dismall from the force, and if not an official of the Fuerza Publica, will face other charges following the investigation.
