Brains Found Upstate New York, Police Seek Inquiries From Anyone Who Lost Their Mind

Maybe the brains could be useful in Washington DC.

[From article]
Gouverneur police collected one of the brains and brought it to a local veterinarian for an examination, WWNY TV 7 reported. The veterinarian determined the brain had been professionally removed -- likely from a dog -- and preserved in formaldehyde.
The veterinarian told North Country Now that the brain was consistent with a beagle-sized brain and was in very good condition with no damage.
But a chemistry professor at Clarkson University told North Country Now the specimen was possibly from a sheep, not a dog.
Regardless, police told both news outlets there was little to fear. The nine brains are believed to have been part of a collection for educational or research purposes and no criminal activity, other than littering, is suspected, police said.
