Humane Society officials mystified by dead animals

Animal control officials in one North Jersey town have a mystery on their hands. Workers with the Newark Associated Humane Society say someone has been disposing more than a dozen dead animals a day in the Hudson County township of North Bergen.

Someone is also dumping live stray animals in the township.

Humane Society Manager Denton Infield tells the Jersey Journal he thinks the culprit may be someone under contract to do animal control in a nearby municipality who is trying to save money by dumping the animals elsewhere.

Infield says the animals being recovered include dead dogs, cats, skunks, opossums, raccoons, sheep and goats.

Infield says the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services is investigating the matter.
