2 men charged after SnapChat shows alligator forced to drink beer

SCDNR arrested 20-year-old Joseph Andrew Floyd Jr. and 21-year-old Zachary Lloyd Brown - both of Ridgeland, S.C. - on wildlife harassment charges in the aftermath of an incident that went viral on social media.

Two South Carolina men are being charged for the harassment of an alligator after photos were posted online showing the men pouring beer into the juvenile reptile's mouth, SCDNR officials say.

Kyndel McConchie of the S.C. Department of Natural Resources confirmed to the Charlotte Observer Friday that the incident did occur in SC, possibly Thursday, and that it may have involved minors.

Authorities say the incident happened Wednesday on a public dirt road between Hardeeville and Tillman in Jasper County.

Beaufort County officers from DNR's Law Enforcement Division are investigating reports that a group of teenagers abused a baby alligator and poured beer down its throat.

Alligators are a federally protected and state law forbids people from feeding them and capturing them without a permit. Another picture shows smoke being blown onto the face of the gator. But for a case like this, no federal protection applies.

The charge their facing is a misdemeanor, with a maximum fine of $300.
