Dead-critter revenge common problem, chief says

BROOKVILLE, Pa. – Police in one western Pennsylvania community are investigating a case of bar kill: a groundhog and a grouse, both dead, tossed into a tavern by unsatisfied customers.

The (Dubois) Courier-Express reports that the animals were tossed into Bill’s Bar hours apart Sunday in Brookville, about 70 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

Brookville police Chief Ken Dworek told The Associated Press that the suspects are an underage man who was refused service at the bar and another who was turned away because of “an alcohol problem.”

The chief said this kind of use of dead animals is a fairly common problem in Brookville, a borough with just a few thousand residents.

He said, for example, “a guy will get in an argument and put a dead squirrel on his girlfriend’s doorknob, that kind of thing.”
