CRESTVIEW — Charges may be pending in connection with what appears to be a videotaped attack on Twin Hills Park geese.

In the video, a blonde woman appears to taunt three geese, which Panhandle Animal Welfare Services Director Dee Thompson identified as a Chinese breed.

The woman tells the geese, "I'll beat you so hard you won't even know it," while jumping back and forth in front of the animals before, it appears, she kicks one of the geese on the head.

A child is seen briefly in the video, and is heard laughing.

The woman, whose identity police have not confirmed, could face felony animal cruelty with intent charges, Thompson said, but Crestview Police Department spokesman Lt. Andrew Schneider said no charges have been filed.

Police officers are consulting with state wildlife authorities to determine which of several possible charges to file. If the geese are determined to be of a protected species, the charges could be more severe, Schneider said.
