In Central Islip, New York, a black SUV that had been leaving the federal courthouse ran over and killed a group of baby Canadian geese.  The Suffolk SPCA has launched an animal cruelty investigation after surveillance video shows the act may have been done on purpose.

According to Long Island News 12, two adult geese and their babies had been crossing the road outside of the courthouse on Thursday when the vehicle made the left hand turn and ran over the babies without stopping. The adult geese are shown flying away and were not injured. Chief Roy Gross, of the Suffolk SPCA, stated it would have been proper for the driver to have stopped his vehicle. If the act was intentional, the driver of the vehicle can face animal cruelty charges.

Canada geese are protected from hunting and capture outside of designated hunting seasons in the United States by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and in Canada under the Migratory Birds Convention Act.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Suffolk SPCA at 631-382-7722.

      We have a huge number of them where I live across the high school soccer field. Usually they arrive after the rain. I feel bad for the lawn care takers since their poop is huge and everywhere. Makes it difficult for us dog walkers, lol.

    That’s just disgusting and infuriating. It takes so little time to show humanity towards these geese. At one time I was driving on a busy interstate in NJ and myself and the rest of the traffic stopped as a flock of ducks (Mom & ducklings) crossed the road.

    A really wicked and cruel person. Feel so very very sad for the adult geese. Please find the person who did this and send him to jail. Put the names in the papers and make them feel ashamed!!

    Absolutely SICKENING!! Such disregard for life! If caught they will be fined and sent on their way which makes me crazy!! So many evil monsters among us!

    Please keep the public informed on this disturbing issue. When an animal is cruelly and intentionally killed or abused, it’s time to remove this person from society. The mind is powerful and when it is disturbed or plagued with mental illness, the person becomes dangerous to society. God bless the parents as they are suffering from this unbelievable act.

    I normally don’t watch these videos, but I had to see if it was deliberate, and yes it was. The POS even sped up to run over the goslings! I hope they catch that POS and lock him up, along with the driver of the white car that followed him, for the rest of their worthless lives.
