Vandals target school animals

A Canberra Catholic school was the target of cruel vandals who killed a number of farmyard animals raised by children with learning disabilities.

AAP reports several ducks and chickens were attacked on the grounds of MacKillop Catholic College in what police believe to be a deliberate act.

School principal Michael Lee said that the animals were part of a program designed to help year 7-9 students with learning difficulties engage in practical science.

Mr Lee described the attack as a "low act'' and said that while schools live with vandalism all the time it was very disappointing to see defenseless animals killed and injured.
