UPDATE: Dead animals in Waupaca were dumped improperly

Posted: Updated:
WAUPACA (AP) -- Authorities in Waupaca County say several animal carcasses that were found in two locations over the weekend were disposed of improperly.
The Appleton Post-Crescent Media reports 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.


WAUPACA COUNTY (WKOW) -- Authorities are investigating a gruesome discovery near New London.

Waupaca County Sheriff's Office says about a dozen animal carcasses were found dumped in a ditch and along the shoulder of the road near Madden Road and Crain Road.

WBAY-TV reports the dead animals include deer, a cat and chickens. Some of the animals were wrapped in plastic. Another sheet of plastic and a latex glove were also found near the animals.

The sheriff's office says more information on the investigation will be available on Monday.
