However, the one who didn’t think the stunt was so funny was Mayor Brugnaro, who has now issued a bounty on the two men. After calling the two peoples “idiots,” he wrote:
I ask everyone to help us identify them so that we can punish them, writes Brugnaro, who believes that the episode is a danger to public safety.

Last week, Brugnaro was said to have asked for 10 years in prison for a Scottish tourist who was caught diving in the canal, the Guardian reported. In 2020, a French tourist was fined 150 euros for using a paddleboard in the canal.
