State police say eight trash bags filled with dead animals have been found near an interstate junction in the New York suburbs.
The case is similar to the discovery three months ago of 35 dead animals in trash bags a few miles away.
A state police investigator says some of the animals found Monday by highway workers in Rye were dogs. But he says advanced decomposition made it hard to tell what the other animals were and to make an accurate count.
The investigator says the bags were found on a ramp connecting I-95 and I-287.
The bags found in April along the Hutchinson River Parkway in Harrison held dogs, cats and a lizard that had been euthanized. A Bronx veterinarian has been charged.
