    High School Football Players Suspended for Killing Duck on Video

    Several high school football players in New Hampshire have been suspended from games after a video surfaced of a duck being hit with a broomstick.

    The Conway Daily Sun reports the video, taken a couple of weeks ago at a school-sponsored football camp in Moultonborough, shows a duck being lured from Moultonborough Bay while several students stand by. At one point, one student hits a duck with a broomstick.

    The students attend Kennett High School in North Conway. District Superintendent Kevin Richard said another student ended up euthanizing the duck, which was badly hurt. He said some of the students received game suspensions and community service.

    The New Hampshire Fish and Game law enforcement division said on Facebook it feels the school acted swiftly and appropriately. No criminal charges have been filed.
