WAUPACA, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities in Waupaca County say several animal carcasses that were found in two locations over the weekend were disposed of improperly.
But the Appleton Post-Crescent Media reports (http://post.cr/1ppYPUw ) that doesn't mean the animals were killed by the people who dumped them.
Sheriff's officials were called Friday night to a report of several dead animals found along a road in the Town of Lebanon. Chief Deputy Allen Kraeger said there were carcasses of a cat, four chickens and a deer.
Deputies were also called to the Town of Royalton after someone discovered a group of dead ducks and geese.
Authorities say the animals at both sites were dismembered by wild animals, then left by someone.
Kraeger says deputies are trying to determine who left them.
