BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — State wildlife and fisheries agents have cited an Assumption Parish man for killing 49 sea gulls in a suburban New Orleans parking lot.

The state Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, in a news release Thursday, said 30-year-old Jackoby D. Bertot, of Labadieville, was cited for violating the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

Agents began the investigation after receiving complaints by business managers in Jefferson about a man in a white pickup truck speeding through a resting flock of sea gulls in a parking lot Sept. 2. Agents identified the driver through interviews, witness statements and multiple surveillance videos.

Bertot faces up to a $15,000 fine and six months in jail if convicted. Additional fines may be imposed for each bird killed in the alleged incident.
