EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) _

Police Chief Gary Smith said employees at the David Traylor Zoo
on Sunday found two cereopsis geese and one black swan dead from
blunt force trauma and puncture wounds. Smith said a second black
swan had to be euthanized because of the severity of its injuries.

According to a police statement, one or more people entered the
zoo overnight and damaged a number of flower pots. Smith said it
was likely the broken flower pots were used as weapons.

Interim zoo director Lisa Keith said proposals for installing
security cameras are being discussed.
