State police say eight trash bags filled with dead animals have been found near an interstate junction in Westchester. 

The case is similar to the discovery three months ago of 35 dead animals in trash bags a few miles away.
 
An investigator says no connection between the two incidents has been established.
 
The investigator says some of the animals found Monday by highway workers in Rye were dogs. Decomposition made it difficult to tell what kind of animals the others were  and to make an accurate count.
