NAPLES, Fla. — Deputies arrested 40-year-old Yenileisis Vacas Comas and charged her with animal cruelty.

After responding to the home for reports of a domestic disturbance, deputies saw multiple bird cages and injured birds on the patio.

According to Collier County Sheriff’s Office, a person who was at the residence showed deputies a video of Vacas Comas “smashing the caged birds to the ground during an argument.”

The birds were taken to an emergency pet hospital after Vacas Comas was arrested.

“We will not allow animals to be abused in our community,” Sheriff Kevin Rambosk said. “I sincerely hope these birds recover from their injuries.”
