Annoyed Groundskeeper Shoots Ducks With High-Powered Rifle

A Delray Beach groundskeeper was arrested for going all Carl Spackler on some ducks at the apartment complex where he works.

Maintenance supervisor Scott Jensen, 48, was arrested and charged after he went up onto a rooftop and started taking out ducks with a high-powered rifle like a sniper.

The main reason, according to police, was that Jensen got tired of constantly cleaning the ducks' feces from the apartment complex grounds.

Also, the main reason was that he was drunk.

Jensen allegedly used things from a storage room in the apartment complex for target practice, including paper and broken appliances.

But on the night of November 19, training was complete. It was go time. Those ducks had shat their last deck at Jansen's apartment complex.

Just after 9 p.m., two residents of the rental community noticed a man dressed in black on the roof of the complex who was crouched in a military tactical stance.

He then began firing his rifle toward the lake where the ducks congregate. 

Residents immediately called police.

Cops searched the complex and eventually made their way up to the roof where Jensen was taking out ducks like Oswald.

According to the report, Jensen's rifle was equipped with a long-range scope. He also had a .22-caliber nitrogen-propelled pellet rifle (also with a scope), a backpack, a jacket, and a couple of flashlights.

Oh, and he had six bottles of Miller beer.

Scott Jensen was not fucking around. When cops interviewed him, he showed no remorse, telling them he was annoyed and had grown "tired of cleaning up the duck feces."

Jensen confessed to shooting at least 13 ducks in all.

However, police found only two dead ducks on the grounds near the lake. According to the report, it is unknown what happened to the other ducks (a clue might be they ran for their lives because some asshole was shooting a high-powered rifle in their direction!).

Police also noted that Jensen was clearly intoxicated and determined to rid the ducks from the complex.

Duck Rambo was booked in the Palm Beach County Jail. He was released the next day.

Id like to kick the ass of that idiot killing innocent ducks. I think HE is the nuisance. 


Are you guys even reading the articles you're cutting and pasting from the Sun-Sentinel?   A pellet gun, even a "nitrogen powered" one is not exactly high powered.  If you're just going to be posting the exact same stories the sun-sentinel is reporting, just provide a link instead of pretending you're still doing your own reporting."Officers immediately arrested Jensen and collected the belongings he had with him on the roof: a .22-caliber "nitrogen propelled" pellet rifle with a scope"

See what happens when you party all day at the Allen West BBQ?

On a positive note, at least Scott didn't break out his .45 ACP with the hopes of converting that FUCKING SOCIALISM LOVING, LATTE DRINK, FREE HEALTH CARE FOR ALL FOWLS, UNPATRIOTIC duck to 'MURICAN.

By the way, was that duck from Montreal?  Did the bird speak speaka de Frenchy?


forgot the link:

note: only covered if killed 'Cruely'.   

the definition of Cruelty is left out....

Muscovies are protected by Florida Statute 828.12 regarding animal cruelty. However, because these birds originated in Florida from domestic stock, they are not considered "wildlife." As of March 31st, 2010 a federal control order is in effect that allows control by landowners, wildlife management agencies, and tenants, agents, or employees without federal or state permits, and prohibits the release of muscovies.  More information may become available (FAQ) on this website:


as typical, the story is less than factual, and heavily slanted 

law on Muscovy ducks. - note: they drive away the migratory birds.   


According to the report, Jensen's rifle was equipped with a long-rangescope. He also had a .22 caliber nitrogen propelled pellet rifle (alsowith a scope), a backpack, a jacket, and a couple of flashlights.

a pellet gun is a high powered rifle?  what a crock.  -doesn't excuse killing ducks.  even if they are a PITA.

@chrisjoseph13 In the State of Texas, the following voted laws were recently passed.

1. A college issued photo ID, from a state university, was NOT an acceptable as proof to vote. 


2. A hunting license, with NO photo, was more than adequate.

Not that this really has anything to do with Bambi getting nuked by the BFG-9000 ... just every time I think of a hunting nut job, I feel the need to retell this tale.

Carry on.  Semper Fi.

Huh... Interesting. Although there has to be a law about going up on rooftops and firing a rifle like a sniper, no? Then again... Florida.
