Trash bags containing decapitated birds were recently discovered in a Jersey Shore town.

Little Egg Harbor police say officers were dispatched to a wooded section of the Ocean County municipality near Route 9 on a report of dead birds last Saturday.

That’s when they discovered a bag containing 22 birds, including roosters, hens, guinea hens, pigeons.

On Monday, police were sent to the same location and found five more decapitated birds.
