Thirty-one Fish Killed, Mutlilated On School Campus

WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., Aug. 15 (UPI) — Police in California say they are searching for someone who killed and mutilated 31 catfish being raised at a high school as part of a student project.

A student working on a Future Farmers of America project arrived at the school in Woodland Sunday to find a gate into the agricultural area, made up of four cement tanks where several medium-sized catfish were kept, open, KTXL-TV, Sacramento, reported.

Police said liquid herbicide taken from an adjacent storage shed had been poured into the tanks and several fish had been removed from the tanks, killed and mutilated.

The fish remaining in the tanks were all dead from exposure to the chemical herbicide, they said.

Woodland High School is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible, while police said they were investigating the crime as a “felonious killing, torturing and/or mutilating of animals or fish.”
