The two men are being charged for the harassment of an alligator after photos were posted online, showing them pouring beer into the reptile’s mouth.

The incident took place on Wednesday, on a road between Hardeeville and Tillman in Jasper County.

Joseph Andrew Floyd Jr., 20, and Zachary Lloyd Brown, 21, both of Ridgeland, admitted to officers that they picked up the alligator after they saw it crossing the road.

According to Floyd Jr., they then released the alligator and watched it swim away in a nearby pond. Both suspects face a maximum fine of $300.

"Alligators are protected under state law and even federal law, where they are still listed as threatened solely due to their similarity of appearance to other endangered crocodilians worldwide," SCDNR Alligator Program Coordinator Jay Butfiloski said.
