    Dozens of animal carcasses found dumped in a creek in Loudoun County, Va., were all wildlife, investigators said Tuesday.

    The Loudoun County Department of Animal Services previously said it had identified at least one dog.

    Following a tip from a News4 viewer, the Northern Virginia Bureau found dozens of animal carcasses in the Catoctin Creek near Waterford.

    Dave Daley, who works on a construction site nearby, discovered the carcasses.
