SHARPSBURG (KDKA) — There is disturbing new evidence of animal abuse in Sharpsburg.

Human Officers say they found a decapitated duck late Thursday. Kathy Hecker with Animal Friends is hopeful reward money will draw enough attention to the case.

Meantime, resident Jamie Ganster, who lives along the railroad tracks in Sharpsburg, made two gruesome discoveries in the last few months.
Ganster found a skinned deer and a raccoon stuffed into a box.
“This sounds like some twisted haunted trail to me. This dead deer and this raccoon with its head sticking out of a box – it’s just bizarre. It’s really bizarre,” says Ganster.
