BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Boulder police have closed their investigation into the case of two ducklings that were injured May 1 and then euthanized on Monday.

Police on Tuesday cited inconsistency in witness statements and the possibility that geese, and not rock-throwing children, caused the injuries.

Animal rescue worker Jenny Bryant says the ducklings could not see and were unable to balance on their own following their rescue.

According to the Boulder Daily Camera (https://tinyurl.com/k6oqwd9 ), state regulations require that any wild animals that cannot be rehabilitated to live on their own be euthanized. The state prohibits people from adopting them.
