Unfortunate Ends Part 4

Friday, March 19th, 2010

Domestic Dog, Breed undetermined (Canis lupus familiaris)

Place of Incident: North-West Mercer Park, Lawrenceville, NJ. Date and Time of Death: Between the months of December 2008 and February 2009. Cause: Unknown.

Notes: At the time of reported discovery, the extent of decay was considerable. It is likely that this animal was a pet who had wandered off and become confused, lost and endangered, succumbing to either the frigid winter temperature or to malnourishment. A visitor to the park discovered the remains in the center of a field while enjoying a recreational stroll.

Green Frog (Rana clamitans melanota)

Place of Incident: South Main Street, Pennington, NJ. Date and Time of Death: Between the hours of 7 and 9 a.m., October 13, 2009. Cause: Contact with a motor vehicle or cyclist.


Notes:
Both feet were flattened, one partially severed. At present we are led to believe that it was not the immediate impact of the vehicle that proved fatal to the frog, as his vitals appeared to be intact. More likely, trauma or perhaps even eventual starvation as a result of immobility ended the fellow’s life.

Rock Pigeon (Columba livia)

Place of Incident: Green Street, Philadelphia, PA. Date and Time of Death: Between the hours of 1 and 4 p.m., January 3, 2010. Cause: Unknown, but the death is being investigated as intentional. Excessive violence was undoubtedly exercised.

Notes:
Any trace or portion of pigeon’s head has not yet been found. It is to be assumed she died in grizzly fashion, and that portions of the remains were removed from the scene, or else the head was devoured on the spot. Credited with co-discovery is Michelle Nugent (a very talented artist whom this report’s author is honored to know – please see her work at themixedgoods.blogspot.com and let her know how much you like it).
