A St. Bernard Parish man was arrested Monday after sheriff's deputies said he stole a duck from a public park and planned to eat it.

The Sheriff's Office said Ashmeer Tahir, 38, of Chalmette was booked with theft of an animal after someone saw him take a muscovie duck from Sidney Torres Park.

A deputy found Tahir at his home with a duck inside a bucket in his van, authorities said.

Deputies said Tahir told them he intended to eat the animal.

The duck was returned to the park and set free.
