MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (FOX 13) - Police in South Florida arrested a woman accused of purposely disturbing a sea turtle nest on a beach.

Miami Beach police said officers and bystanders saw 41-year-old Yaqun Lu grab a wooden stake from the roped-off nesting area. She then was seen "jabbing at the sea turtle nest and stomping all over the nest with her bare feet."

According to the Miami Herald, the nest was in closed-off section of the beach, surrounded by yellow tape along with a posted "Do Not Disturb" sign.

"Thankfully, it appears the eggs were not damaged," Miami Beach police tweeted.

2. Why would anyone do this?

I had the same thought. How cruel can humans get?

4. Why, just why?

I can understand people who destroy wildlife and the environment for profit or personal gain, but it makes no sense to me when these creeps destroy things purely for the fun of it. I guess their life sucks so bad that they need to go stomp some baby turtles to feel better about themselves or something?
