WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- State police say eight trash bags filled with dead animals have been found near an interstate junction in the New York City suburbs.

The case is similar to the discovery three months ago of 35 dead animals in trash bags a few miles away.

An investigator says no connection between the two incidents had been established.

The investigator says some of the animals found Monday by highway workers in Rye were dogs. But he says decomposition made it hard to tell what the other animals were and to make an accurate count.

The investigator says the bags were found on a ramp connecting Interstates 95 and 287.

The bags found in April along the Hutchinson River Parkway in Harrison held dogs, cats and a lizard that had been euthanized. A Bronx veterinarian has been charged.
