James Clairmont, 56, was accused of animal abuse after witnesses saw him run the ducks in a mobile home park in Largo, Florida on Sunday.

A man from Florida has been accused of having his truck deliberately driven over a group of ducks playing in a puddle in the middle of the road.

James Clairmont, 56, was accused of animal abuse after witnesses saw him run the ducks in a mobile home park in Largo on Sunday.

The police said that 11 ducks were playing with a mother duck in a shallow lake.

Two witnesses, one of whom was a child, said they saw Clairmont slow down with a speed bump before accelerating and deliberately heading for the ducks.

They told the police that they were trying to scream to slow Clairmont.

He reportedly hit three of the ducks before fleeing the stage to his trailer, just a block away.

Authorities said two of the ducks died on the spot.

One was taken to a nearby animal hospital to be treated for broken bones.

When the police questioned him, Clairmont denied ever seeing the ducks on the road.

He could not explain to the police why, according to police, blood and duck feathers are stuck to the wheels of his truck.

The police reported that he looked drunk because he smelled of alcohol, had red eyes and spurned his words.
