15 dead animals removed from road

— Authorities are seeking any information about who may have shot about 15 animals and laid them across a county road in central Kansas.

The carcasses of several rabbits, a possum, a turkey, a duck and possibly a raccoon were found last week on a road about a mile south of Ellinwood.

Two Kansas Highway Patrol troopers and a Barton County sheriff’s detective spent part of a night removing the dead animals.

Trooper Steve Billinger says it was a disturbing thing to see.

Wildlife officials say it’s possible state law was violated because a permit is required for hunting turkey. There is also a law against wanton waste.

This is spooky, not just the killing of those animals, but the ritual way they were laid out. I am sure whoever did it had something in mind as they put the dead animal down on the road.

Just thought of something, could it be these animals are road kill and someone is protesting that?
