Bags of Decapitated Birds Found in Wooded New Jersey Area

Bags of decapitated birds have been found in New Jersey.

Little Egg Harbor police said they've  found bags of mutilated birds twice in just a few days. Police say they responded to calls on Saturday and on Monday to find trash bags full of dead roosters, hens, guinea hens and pigeons in a wooded area.

The decapitated bodies of 27 birds were found in all. Their heads were also in the bags. 

Ken Carter told News 4 he found bags of the remains hanging from tree branches and on the ground. 

"The Ones I looked at, they were white and the heads were off," he said. 

The Asbury Park Press first reported the findings. 

Police are continuing to investigate the case.
