DNA tests will be done to determine if the puppies are dogs, coyotes or some other domestic or wild animal, while necropsies will be conducted to learn how they died. A woman walking her dog found the bodies Friday in woods near a park in Lower Macungie Township, outside Allentown, the Lehigh County Humane Society said. The bodies were in or near a bag that had been torn open, perhaps by an animal. Unless a witness comes forward, it's usually difficult to make arrests in animal cruelty cases, authorities said. And that means the person's motive remains unclear. "It could have been kids or some whacked-out person who found an abandoned litter of puppies or coyotes and just thought they'd have some fun," said Cary Moran, the county humane society's shelter manager. "That's what's so scary about not being able to (solve) these cases, and find out what happened, because you don't know who's out there. Because, unfortunately, animal abuse is a precursor to harming (people)."
