BROOKVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Police in one western Pennsylvania town are investigating a case of bar kill: dead animals tossed into a tavern by dissatisfied customers.

Brookville police Chief Ken Dworek says police believe they know who tossed the dead groundhog and, later, a grouse into Bill's Bar on Sunday, but they just can't prove it — yet.

The (Dubois) Courier-Express reports the groundhog was tossed into the bar about 70 miles northeast of Pittsburgh about 5 p.m., before a man sped off in a pickup. About four hours later, two men returned and tossed in the dead grouse for good measure.

The chief tells The Associated Press he's hoping bystanders will help identify the men.

The chief says the suspects are an underage man and another who has been refused service because of an alcohol problem.
