Sandusky police were called to the 1700 block of W. Adams St. at about 8 p.m., arriving to find a 7-year-old girl and 8-year-old boy walking nearby. The two children handed three Canada Goose eggs to police, then explained they were walking in AMVETS Park when a group of teenage boys handed them the eggs.
The boys told the children they had to break the eggs, according to a Sandusky police report. The teens had been carrying a large bag full of eggs at the time.
A witness said he saw the teens chasing geese from their nests then stealing their eggs. The younger children identified some of the boys by name, so officers went to one boy’s home. The boy’s mother found her son’s BB gun in his car, but officers found no eggs at the residence, the report said.
Officers passed the information to the resource office at Sandusky Schools, and also forwarded a report to state and federal wildlife agents, as Canada Geese are federally-protected waterfowl.
The three eggs were then taken to Back to the Wild.
