A group of parents down in the South Bay have some serious problems on their hands after their kids allegedly broke into a high school and trashed the place before slaying a few animals on campus.
NBC News reports that three middle school kids are being accused of breaking into Adrian Wilcox High School over the weekend. Once inside the group reportedly damaged a snack shop and vandalized cars in an auto shop class.
But the scene turned bloody when the youngsters found a rabbit, a duck, and a group of chickens that were being raised as part of student projects. The kids allegedly killed all the animals.
Any halfway decent high school counselor can tell you that vandalism is one thing, but slaying animals is certainly a whole other ballgame. "Obviously it is disturbing when you have middle school-aged children involved that did this act," Lt. Kurt Clarke told the news station. He added that the welfare of local animals is a major concern for law enforcement.
Last night, the cops interviewed the accused students, who did not attend the school. Although police released very few details, school staff told KTVU that they heard the animals had been tortured, hit with blunt objects and thrown against walls.
The students will be charged with animal cruelty, vandalism, and burglary.
