NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The carcasses of beheaded birds, goat, and other animals were found in bags dumped on the side of a road near a reservoir in Westchester County, the local SPCA said.

The New York City Department of Environmental Protection found the bags Monday at the intersection of Route 129 and Underhill Avenue near the New Croton Reservoir in Yorktown. Officers called the SPCA of Westchester.

A necropsy will be performed on the goat to determine how it died, according to Ernest Lungaro of the Humane Law Enforcement Unit of the SPCA of Westchester, a no-kill shelter.

"The public is being urged to contact the SPCA's Animal Cruelty Hotline with any information that may help us make an arrest in this investigation," SPCA Executive Director Shannon Laukhuf said in a statement. "This includes anyone who is missing animals or knows about the dumping or discarding of animals."

If you have any information you can call the SPCA at 914-941-7797.

New York City owns the New Croton Reservoir, which is managed by the city's DEP.
