A fish and chicks incident at a Fort Worth school has led to cancellation of future assemblies.

Live fish in bags and baby chicks were tossed during a pep rally last week at North Side High School.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports the school was celebrating its mariachi group advancing to state competition and the beginning of soccer and baseball seasons.

School district spokesman Clint Bond said three fish and one chick died. Administrators are working to identify the students blamed for the incident.

Administrators have suspended off-campus lunch privileges for seniors for two days.

Superintendent Melody Johnson said animal cruelty won't be tolerated.
