MECHANICSVILLE, Md. — St. Mary's County Sheriff's Office is investigating an animal cruelty case involving two dead dogs found in the woods.

The incident was reported on Sunday after a Deputy responded to the 40400 block of Parlett Morgan Road in Mechanicsville. The deputy located two Black Labrador Retrievers, both weighing over 80 pounds. Officials say their bodies had been decapitated and discarded in the wooded area.

Animal Control officers were also called to the scene and they believe the dogs were disposed of two days ago.

Police ask anyone with information on the possible owners of the dogs, or anyone with information on this case to contact DFC. Rachael Roszell at (301) 475-4200 extension *8108 or by email at
