11 puppies found skinned near Pennsylvania park

MACUNGIE, Pa. — Animal welfare workers say 11 puppies were found dead and skinned near an eastern Pennsylvania park.

The Lehigh County Humane Society says the dogs were discovered Friday near a park in Lower Macungie Township, outside Allentown.

County humane society officials say testing will determine whether the puppies were domestic or wild.

State police are investigating.

The discovery is second disturbing animal death in the county in less than a week. Police say a dog was discovered skinned and cooked about 20 miles away in Lynn Township.
