WOMELSDORF, Pa. (AP) - The Pennsylvania Game Commission says five eastern Pennsylvania hunters killed too many snow geese on one day: 265 to be exact.

The commission says the birds were killed in Marion Township, Berks County on April 1.

The bag limit for the birds is 25 per day, but each of these hunters took at least 48 apiece.

Thirty-year-old Norman Brubaker, of Bernville, is charged with taking 73 of the birds himself and faces up to $14,990 in fines and the costs of replacing the birds. Four others charged with him are each charged with taking 48 of the birds, and faces fines and costs of up to $10,040.

Online court records don’t list attorneys for the men, whose charges were announced Tuesday. Brubaker didn’t answer his phone Wednesday.

Meat from the birds was donated to a food bank.
