IOWA CITY — Authorities are seeking information about the illegal dumping of at least 25 coyote carcasses in Johnson County over the weekend.
Thirteen of the carcasses were found Saturday on Eagle Avenue just north of Rorhet Road SW, west of Iowa City.
Another group of at least 10 carcasses was found nearby on Ivy Avenue SW, north of 400th Street SW, according to a Johnson County Sheriff’s Office post on Facebook.
Iowa's wanton waste law requires that the usable portion of game or fur-bearing animals be removed from the field. Also, it is unlawful to dispose of carcasses in a road ditch.
Anyone with information can call Iowa Department of Natural Resources Officer Erika Billerbeck at (319) 330-9710 or email email@example.com.
