ATLANTA (AP) — Residents in an Atlanta neighborhood say they're alarmed after recent discoveries of dead dogs wrapped in plastic which have been left on roadsides.

Animal control officers are looking in the cases in the Capital View area of southwest Atlanta, but it remains a mystery why the dog carcasses are being dumped.

WSB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1zxcRZs) that the bodies have been found near abandoned homes and in storm drains.

Resident Benjamin Hodges tells the Atlanta station that the third dumped dog in the last month and a half was found on Genessee Avenue near Allene Avenue.

Paul Ebbs, a Fulton County animal cruelty investigator, said if the cases are a common occurrence, police would become involved to find out what's going on.
