DNREC Division of Fish & Wildlife Natural Resources Police says they are still investigating an incident on Sunday mid-morning, where someone apparently intentionally drove through a flock of snow geese off Mulberry Knoll Road, near Lewes. The vehicle apparently hit numerous snow geese, and left them lying dead or dying in a farm field.
