CENTRAL FALLS, R.I. (AP) — Police in Central Falls are investigating the discovery of several headless animal carcasses.

The remains of two goats and three chickens were discovered Tuesday morning along the Providence-Worcester railroad tracks near Blackstone Street.

Police say the heads of the chickens were left near the bodies, but there was no sign of the goat's head.

No arrests have been made and police declined to speculate on a motive for the mutilations.
