Judicial authorities announced Monday they will press charges against Pereira player Luis Moreno, who brutally kicked the bird after it landed on the field.

The kick led to a furious reaction of the Barranquilla crowd who considered the owl the team’s good luck charm. The Panama-born player had to be protected by police when walking off the field.

According to Bogota radio station Santa Fe, current animal protection laws allow the player to be jailed for “one to three months and be fined between 5,000 to 50,000 pesos ($2.6 to $26).”
