Enough is enough.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission is asking the public to stop spray painting birds.

The FWC Facebook page published a post on Saturday asking the public to stop with the illegal painting of all animals, specifically turtles and birds.

Please keep your paint on the canvas and off of wildlife. White ibis are protected in Florida. Not only is it illegal to paint them, but it is cruel to paint any wildlife.

They linked the post with an earlier plea to stop painting tortoises and turtles.
