FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) – Police in Framingham are trying to figure out who keeps leaving chunks of meat on the town common, and why.

Police say residents have been finding butcher-quality cuts of meat on the common for about five weeks. In the most recent incident, a resident discovered a large piece of raw, unwrapped meat, along with what appeared to be a liver and some bones on Tuesday.

Police Lt. Paul Shastany says someone may be trying to poison animals, so the meat has been sent for testing.

He says police are counting on the public for help in solving the meat mystery.
