Fifteen individuals responsible for the illegal poaching of more than 115 snow geese in California may face possible charges. According to the Sacramento Bee, an additional 10-20 geese were crippled but left in the field. While it is the legal hunting season (October 20 through January 27), it is illegal to kill more than six geese per day. The investigation is still ongoing and no arrests have yet been made, but federal charges are possible because the birds are protected under the Migratory Bird Act.
