Suspect(s) Unknown - We need your help!

A Barrington Police officer arrived to a macabre scene on the morning of June 14 after responding to a report of animal abuse on Kent Street.

The officer said about 15 dead frogs were strewn on top of and around a picnic table near the Kent Street Pond, located across the road from the tennis courts. According to Barrington Police Chief John LaCross, the frogs looked like they had been mutilated, including some that were missing limbs. The charge for the incident, he added, was cruelty to animals.

The police report given by the officer indicated that it looked like the frogs had been there for some time. Chief LaCross also said the frogs may have been struck with a stick.

Police said there are no suspects at the current time.
