Vegas Bird Death Puts Lawyer on Probation

The death case of a bird at a Las Vegas hotel in 2012 puts the California lawyer on 4 years probation. Justin Alexander Teixeira was the man who killed the bird while he was drunk.

A spokeswoman for the Clark County District Attorney's Office, Tess Driver, said, "Justin Alexander Teixeira was on a visit to Las Vegas with two friends when he cornered the bird, a helmeted guinea fowl, before picking it up and ripping off its head as bystanders ate breakfast at the Flamingo hotel."

And this brutal act of the drunken Teixeira shocked the whole city of LA. Las Vegas is famous for its hospitality and has to bear the bad behavior of visitors. But such a brutal act even caused a lot of anger among residences of LA. They wanted justice for the poor little bird.

"There's some weird stuff that goes on down here, but that was a little different," Driver said.

Last year, Teixeira pleaded guilty for the death of a poor Vegas bird which was owned by some one else. And he spent 190 days in a prison boot camp ahead of the final decision on the Vegas bird death case. 

Now the court sentenced Teixeira for up to four years of probation on Monday. And he was also ordered to spend 16 hours a month working unpaid at an animal shelter for the duration of his probation.
