DANVILLE -- Residents and conservation police want to know who killed an entire gaggle. Three weeks ago, eleven geese were run down on Denmark Road over Lake Vermilion. Friday, four more were killed at the same spot. Resident Kellie Petersen wants the driver to answer for their crime.

"They're eating their bugs, eating their dinner, and some jerk had to run them over and kill them," she said. "No sense in it."

The Canadian goose is a federally-protected species. Conservation police are looking for any information to help them find those responsible.
