Animal Control Officer Jake Appel urged residents not to repeat or emulate the prank.
“Don’t do it. It’s immature, it’s illegal. It’s a dead animal it doesn’t need to be sitting on someone’s porch. It needs to be disposed of by the right people,” he said.
Police said no investigation has been opened into the incident.
