Geese Mowed Down

In local suburban news:

'A flock of about 20 geese was on 104th Avenue near 159th Street Tuesday morning when a van struck at least three birds and drove away without stopping, said police Lt. Tony Farrell.'

Police want to identify and question the driver. No word on whether they want to charge him (or her) with a crime.

The geese were on busy road where cars travel pretty fast. So let's suppose the collision was an accident. Did the driver have a legal or moral obligation to stop and help these wild animals? How would he have helped them exactly? By calling 911? By calling a vet?

I suppose I would have stopped at least,
but doubt I could have helped the geese.
