ROCK ISLAND, Iowa (WITI) — Four men are facing criminal charges after they allegedly used a pellet gun to shoot ducks and squirrels at Credit Island Park in Davenport, Iowa — and two of the men are from Waukesha. The men were apparently planning on eating the animals for dinner.

Kevin Baskins with Iowa’s Department of Natural Resources says two mallard ducks and two black squirrels were shot on Sunday, May 4th.

The DNR has issued criminal citations in connection with the shootings — according to FOX6’s sister station, WQAD.

Jeff Harrison — the DNR officer who handled the case says only one of the individuals of the four spoke enough English to understand and explain what was going on.

Two of the men are from Waukesha, and were visiting two other men in Rock Island for the weekend, according to WQAD.

The men were apparently preparing a feast to celebrate their Asian heritage.

Those charged include:

  • 19-year-old Hay Seet of Rock Island, Illinois (charged with hunting without a license, hunting out of season, failure to have a federal waterfowl stamp and shooting waterfowl with lead shot)
  • 18-year-old Kaw Hae of Rock Island (charged with one count of hunting without a license and taking a game bird out of season)
