Fairfield officials are investigating a severed sheep head found in the water off a local beach.
Authorities said the animal head was found off Jennings Beach on Wednesday, a year after a headless goat carcass was found at the same beach. A veterinarian is examining the sheep head.
Police told the Connecticut Post (http://bit.ly/1jy6keP ) that they don't suspect the head is linked to sinister activities.
Fairfield animal control officer Paul Miller said the head appears to have been severed with a butcher's knife and one of the sheep's ears was notched, indicating it was livestock, but there was no identifying tag.
In March of last year, a jogger discovered a goat carcass missing its head and lower legs inside a clear garbage bag that was dumped along the water's edge.
