Police are searching for men who they say were caught on camera breaking into an Australian school and letting three saltwater crocodiles loose.

The incident was reported Sunday at Taminmin College. The video shows the crocodiles being pushed through a broken window. Masked intruders are seen rummaging through the office.

According to the BBC, wildlife rangers said the crocodiles were in poor health and had their mouths taped.

Northern Territory police said the intruders could face fines of up to $50,000 for animal cruelty.
