Mundelein police are looking for a person who struck and killed a flock of Canada geese crossing the road Sunday evening.

The unknown vehicle was traveling south on Midlothian Road near Cambridge Road at approximately 5:15 p.m. when it hit and killed 19 geese, then fled the scene, according to a post on the Mundelein Police Department's Facebook page.


Canada geese are protected migratory birds, and if they're intentionally hit, the offenders could be fined by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
