JACKSON-A slaughtered sheep carcass dumped on Allyson Road last Saturday remained nearly a week later. Neighborhood residents were upset, claiming animal control services were called and township workers simply moved the carcass, which was wrapped in a blue tarp to the side of the road.
Today, Mayor Michael Reina found out about the carcass and notified the community that it will be removed on Friday.
Reina said a call from a concerned resident today was the first his office had heard about the incident and informed Township Business Administrator Helene Schlegel.
Residents on Facebook offered many theories about the discarded sheep, ranging from a science experiment gone wrong to a religious cult sacrifice.
