KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Animal control officers in Kansas City, Missouri, are investigating how the dismembered remains of a horse ended up in a city park.
A man playing disc golf found the remains Monday evening in Kessler Park.
Police spokesman Capt. Tim Hernandez says the horse appeared to have been prepared for consumption. After the meat was removed, the carcass was placed in a barrel and dumped in the park.

Hernandez said in a news release that a veterinarian will determine the time and cause of the horse’s death.
Animal control will lead the investigation unless it is determined the horse was stolen.
