KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City officials say someone dumped the bodies of five dead pit bulls orpit bull mixes in northern Kansas City.

City officials found the dead dogs Wednesday stuffed into four garbage bags along a dead-end street that is often a dumping site for trash.

City spokesman Chris Hernandez says investigators are reviewing video from cameras that were hung in the area to try and catch people who dump their trash. He says there is some evidence that the dogs were abused but that is still being investigated.

If the people who dumped the dogs are caught, they could face animal cruelty and illegal dumping charges.
