Animal skins found dumped at roadside in Alders Road, Five Oak Green

Half a dozen black sacks filled to the brim with dead animal skins have been dumped at the roadside in a village.

Nancy Baker made the gruesome discovery while driving to work on Tuesday afternoon and immediately rang the police.

The 46-year-old, from Horsmonden, stopped her car when she saw animal fur, including that of a deer, protruding from the bags in Alders Road.

She said: "I'm not 100% sure what is in the bags as I didn't want to start looking through.

"Police have been to the scene and they have put tape around the bags but they are still there."

Nancy, a private carer, was driving through Five Oak Green at around lunchtime and said the area the bags were dumped is a prime location for flytippers.

She said: "I drove past the bags and thought it looks a lot like animal fur.

"I realised there wasn't just a little bit of animals but there were for our five bags all with animals stuffed in.

"There was also a horse's jacket in with them. It looks like they have been skinned. I rang the police straight away and I have been trying to report it to Country Eye.

"It is a very quiet country lane and you get vans parking here. It is a typical flytipping scene."

A Kent Police spokesperson said: "We were called at 1.20pm on Tuesday, March 12 regarding a report that plastic bags containing animal skins had been deposited in Alders Road, Five Oak Green.

"Officers attended and made initial enquiries to identify who had left the bags at the scene.

"The matter was then referred to Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council to arrange removal of the items."
