The body of a large pig and a raccoon were found this morning near the entrance of a popular Elysian Park walking trail where several other animal bodies have been dumped in recent years. Police who arrived on the scene shortly after 8 a.m. said the pig, which was partially hidden under a large bush, appeared to be decapitated. The body of a raccoon was found nearby enclosed in a plastic bag. Police and Recreation and Parks staff had blocked off the area, located off Academy Road and below Park Drive, with yellow tape and plastic barricades as they awaited the city’s Animal Services Department to arrive.
