LEWES, Del.- As of Monday at 9 a.m., Nick Lank's Facebook Post had been shared more than 850 times. By 6:30 p.m., that number had almost doubled to more than 1,500 shares, as people across Delmarva are looking for answers in a bizarre crime. 

In his post, Lank said he witnessed a driver turn his SUV off of Mulberry Knoll Road near Lewes, heading straight for a flock of snow geese. He said that the action appeared to be intentional, as he drove straight through the birds, killing dozens. Lank posted a picture of the carnage on his Facebook with a message. 

"This is a total f**king disgrace," said Lank in the post.

On Monday afternoon, Lank spoke with WBOC about what he saw. 

"I saw the vehicle in front of me," he said. "And next thing I know, he just takes off. Right into the field... Straight into the birds. No hesitation. Nothing in the road. Just seemed like it was out of pure enjoyment for him." 

Lank said that he followed the black, four-door Chevrolet Blazer for a couple miles to Peddlers Village, before a car pulled in between them. Lank wasn't able to get the driver's license plate, but said he called the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, which is currently investigating the incident. 

"You have people that like that," Lank said. "Who want to say, 'Hey - let's go run over these geese because it's funny.' No. It's just, you have to have a point of respect and compassion in your life to say this isn't the right thing to do."
