(CNN) A woman has been arrested in Miami Beach, Florida, after she was seen stomping on a sea turtle nest, according to police.

Yaqun Lu, 41, was seen by witnesses and Miami Beach police officers on Saturday "jabbing at the sea turtle nest" with a wooden stake and "stomping all over the nest with her bare feet," an arrest affidavit says.

Lu, a Chinese citizen who gave police a home address in Michigan, faces a charge of marine turtle or egg molestation or harassment, per online court records.

A number of sea turtle species are protected under both the 1973 US Endangered Species Act and Florida law, according to Miami Beach's website, and it's illegal to touch or harm them or their eggs.

What... the... actual... fuck... is wrong with this woman? Why would anyone do such a thing? I just can't comprehend what would drive a person to do this. I don't understand how some people can be so cruel to another living being. That fucking smirk on her face is just galling.

visit Mar-A-Lago? She certainly sounds like tRump's kind of "girl" What a cruel person she must be. So glad the eggs survived.

Not all sick/crazy people are homeless, some are our neigbhors and you never know it until they do something bad. Also they aren't all Trump voters, they just skew that way.

5. something is missing in her

and she should be watched closely for sociopathic behavior. She needs to be kept away from anyone who is vulnerable, such as children and animals.
