CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Police in Charlotte are working to identify five teens who attacked some geese at a school and broke the windows on a school bus.

The geese were found at the Kennedy Charter School on Monday.

School maintenance director Charles Battaglia says someone also broke several windows at the school.

Surveillance video from Sunday evening shows five teenagers damaged the property and used rocks and a board to attack the geese, which nest on the school grounds every spring.

Carolina Waterfowl Rescue workers took two of the geese to Monroe Animal Hospital for treatment on Tuesday. A third goose was being treated for minor injuries. A fourth goose is missing and thought to be dead.

Federal penalties for harming Canada geese include fines of up to $10,000.
