It was a discovery that was covered by local media outlets, including this news station.

According to police records, LMPD Animal Services received a report on a decapitated animal that had been abandoned on a concrete pad next to a locked dumpster.

Police received an anonymous tip that Osterhoudt had left the animal next to the dumpster.

Authorities interviewed Osterhoudt and he allegedly admitted in a written statement that his 14-year-old son killed the animal. Police say Osterhoudt then removed the coyote's head and tail in Jefferson County.

Authorities say Osterhoudt said he tried to locate a dumpster where he could get rid of the coyote. After he tried to open the dumpster and found it was locked, he allegedly left the animal's body at the scene.

Osterhoudt is charged with criminal littering.
