WOODLAND (CBS13) – Police in Woodland arrested three boys for allegedly killing 31 fish at Woodland High School over the weekend.

On Sunday a student found the catfish mutilated or poisoned to death in pools where they were being raised as part of a FFA project. Each fish was approximately 1 ¾-2 ¼ pounds and 14”-16” long.

Police say an investigation led them to three young Woodland residents aged 14, 12 and 11. All three were cited for cruelty to animals, burglary and conspiracy. They were released to their parents.

The case remains under investigation. Anyone with information in the case is asked to call the Woodland Police Department at 530-666-2411 or 530-661-7800.

    The kids who raised the fish and worked on the project were obviously traumatized from this. They should sue the parents of the juveniles, because the juvenile justice system is a joke. Make the young criminals parents pay $$$
    and that may get the parents attention so they will supervise their kids more closely.

      I think when the kids are minors, the parents and their insurance is liable. some years back kids killed the Koi at Fountain Square and they were worth like 50 grand, the parents were liable for the damage

    Parenting issue if I ever heard/read one. This most likely happened overnight so why weren’t this children at home, in bed?

    Brings back memories when my daughter had chickens for FFA and
    someone came in over the fences and mutilated the prize winning roosters
    that she just broght back from Dixon MayFair. She was going to sell
    them but apparently someone took it upon themselves to kill instead.
    Not only destoryed the animals but the school district closed up the
    whole agriculture department shortly after the incident.

    Hitting catfish with a hammer? Really?
    First step to serial killing, mutilating and killing animals.
    Keep a close eye on these “kids”.
