Severed sheep head found at Connecticut beach
Fairfield (AP) — Fairfield officials are investigating a severed sheep head found in the water off a local beach.
Authorities say the animal head was found off Jennings Beach on Wednesday, a year after a headless goat carcass was found at the same beach. A veterinarian is examining the sheep head.
Police told the Connecticut Post that they don't suspect the head is linked to sinister activities.
Fairfield animal control officer Paul Miller says the head appears to have been severed with a butcher's knife and one of the sheep's ears was notched, indicating it was livestock. But there was no identifying tag.
In March of last year, a jogger discovered a goat carcass missing its head and lower legs inside a clear garbage bag that was dumped along the water's edge.
