Nipomo HS moving forward after turkey killings

Dogs are the latest suspects after 19 turkeys were found dead at Nipomo High School Wednesday morning.

A medical report shows the puncture wounds on the birds appear to be from a dog. Detectives say surveillance video from the school shows two dogs in the area near the time of the attack. They may have gotten in because of a faulty lock on the cage. Eight students put in a lot of time and money raising those turkeys and still plan to compete in the upcoming fairs.

"We've gotten a lot of support from communities all over the Central Coast, sending emails and calling, what can we do? So, we're definitely moving forward," said Nipomo High School Principal Michelle Johnson.

Investigators have not ruled out foul play. They are looking into whether someone could have used the dogs to intentionally kill the turkeys.
