Further investigation finds carcass not a dog

Loudoun County Animal Services officials announced that all of the carcasses found Nov. 19 in Catoctin Creek off Featherbed Lane in Lovettsville were of wild animals. It was previously reported that one of the skinned carcasses was a dog.

As such, the investigation into the manner has been closed.

“Our Animal Control investigators worked with the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries’ wildlife biologist and Virginia State Veterinarian pathologists to determine that all animal carcasses found at the site were that of wildlife species," said Tom Koenig, director of the Loudoun County Department of Animal Services."

Koenig did say, however, that VDGIF conservation officers are still investigating who dumped 78 wild animal carcasses into Catoctin Creek and will continue to communicate with local authorities as information arises.
