JACKSON, N.J. (AP) - Authorities have charged the owner of two dead donkeys that were found dumped off a road in Jackson Township with animal cruelty.

The New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says one donkey was found dead in a paddock at JR Farms and the other was found on the ground barely breathing in early November. The SPCA says the second donkey was euthanized with a gunshot to the head.

The animals’ owner said he removed the carcasses to an area near East Veterans Highway and Bennetts Mills Road.

The SPCA says the owner left a pot-bellied pig behind at the farm. He’s charged with abandoning a domestic animal.

Authorities have not released the name of the person.
