Leeds primary school's chickens 'kicked to death'
Chickens belonging to a primary school were kicked to death by intruders, police have said.
The birds, which lived on the grounds of Middleton Primary School, were attacked at about 21:00 BST on Sunday.
It is believed a gang of up to six youths climbed over a fence to carry out the attack.
West Yorkshire Police said it was a "cruel and mindless" attack which caused distress to both pupils and staff.
Insp Lucy Leadbeater said: "We are carrying out enquiries to identify those responsible and would like to hear from anyone who saw a group of youths in the area or who has any specific information about those involved.
The school has been approached for comment.
