Police are continuing to investigate after dozens of dead animals were dumped by a school.

A ‘decapitated deer’, pheasants, and hares were among the 25 carcasses left outside Awbridge Primary School.

The shocking incident last Friday prompted a police investigation.

This remains ongoing and no arrests have been made, Hampshire Constabulary confirmed.

Police were notified about the incident on Danes Road around 6.30am on Friday, February 9.

Mandy Robinson was driving past the school with her husband when she clocked the distressing scene.

The Stockbridge resident told the Echo: “It was like something out of a horror movie.

“I could not believe what I was seeing.

“I immediately called the police when I saw it and the person I spoke to said she was going to get on it right away. I don’t know why someone would do this.”

The dead animals were cleared away by police alongside Test Valley Borough Council.

The public are asked to contact police with any information or footage by calling 101 or visiting the police website, quoting 44240058633.
