Alpacas killed with iron bar by duo in high school raid

POLICE are hunting two men who seriously injured and killed two alpacas after entering a Caboolture high school  on Saturday morning.

One of the males was wearing a blue t-shirt, blue jeans and white shoes.

The other was wearing black shorts, a white jumper and a red cap.
