THE animal carcasses discovered in Slieveanorra forest recently could have been there "over a year" according to a Department of Agriculture Environment and Rural Development spokesperson.
Following questions last week in relation to a "huge pile" of carcasses, at least one of which was a horse, DAERA said they would investigate with a view to removing the bones as "soon as practically possible."
However, the woman who made the initial discovery has been back in touch with The Chronicle to say the bones remain in the beautiful scenic forest, close to a picnic area.
She said: "I can't understand them saying those bones may have been there over a year. I refute that as I walk my dog there regularly and they definitely have not been there! It's impossible. And there's more than one animal carcass there, there's at least 10 to 15! There's at least two or three horse skulls and cows as well as sheep carcasses. it's nothing but a blight on the landscape and it angers me!"
