BRADENTON, Fla., Jan. 5 (UPI) -- Residents of a Florida neighborhood said vultures have been attracted to the area by as many as 30 pig carcasses someone dumped in a creek.

The neighbors in the Wares Creek neighborhood of Bradenton said someone has been dumping pig carcasses into the creek and officials said they do not know where the pigs are coming from or who is dumping them, the Bradenton Herald reported Thursday.

"As a hunter, I'm trying to figure out why I'd (someone would) kill a hog, and bring it to downtown Bradenton," City Council member Bemis Smith said.

Bradenton Police Chief Michael Radzilowski said he contacted the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and was told not to take action on the issue.
