Allen County sheriffs deputies are investigating the discovery of dozens of dead game birds found dumped near Deer Creek north of Iola.
Deputies said the fowl primarily ducks and geese were found near the intersection of 1600 Street and South Dakota Road, more commonly known as Twin Trestles.
Master Deputy Daren Kellerman said initial estimates of about 20 birds were inaccurate, because they were stacked three-deep in a water-filled itch. Forty-eight birds in all were found.
