10-31-13 animal carcasses dumped

MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin officials report a gruesome discovery in the Town of Franklin — more than a dozen skinned animal carcasses found along a road.  Department of Natural Resources officials say this is something they see more of during the fall and the problem is likely to continue until about a month after the gun deer season ends.  Conservation Warden Robert Stroess says animals like raccoons are hunted or trapped for their fur, skinned and discarded. The practice doesn't break any hunting laws, but whoever dumped the carcasses could face a fine for littering.  Stroess says officials found 14 raccoons, an opossum and a fox in one spot and five more raccoons in another area.
