March 3, 2010 | 12:16 pm

A volunteer with an eastern Kentucky animal rescue organization says 15 plastic grocery bags containing the bodies and body parts of dead animals have been found in a car wash.

Diana McGuire with the Menifee County Humane Society says the bags contained six cats that had been shot to death, two possums, a hog's head, a chicken and some unidentified animal bones.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports a customer at the car wash discovered the bags Saturday while washing his car at the 460 Car Wash. He looked up and saw bags in the rafters.

McGuire said there were bags with dead animals in all three bays of the car wash.

The Menifee County Sheriff's Office is investigating.
