WESTFIELD (CBS) – A 15-year-old has admitted to stomping a duck to death at Stanley Park in Westfield last Friday, according to CBS 3 in Springfield.

The teen was arrested Tuesday and charged with animal cruelty and killing a domestic animal, according to our sister station.

The Muscovy Duck, named “Ozzie,” was a fixture at the park for years.

“We are very thankful to all those who assisted in this matter. The support throughout the community for Ozzie has been astounding. We thank all of you for your kind words and support during this time,” park officials said on their website.

The park is still accepting donations to the “Ozzie Fund” to pay for the installation of streaming cameras for the entire area.
