KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Two longtime Kansas City public works employees are accused of dumping five dog carcasses in a remote area on the city's north side.

The Kansas City Star reports the bodies were stuffed into four garbage bags and left on a dead-end street north of Stroud's Oak Ridge Manor restaurant. City spokesman Chris Hernandez says a special investigator tracked down the owners of two of the dogs and traced them to the two city workers.

The city has described the dogs as pit bulls or pit bull mixes.

Residents can call 311 and have the city pick up dead animals left in bags at their curbs. A special public works crew takes the carcasses to animal control to be incinerated, but Hernandez says that "apparently did not happen" this time.
