PITTSBURGH (AP) — Police have charged three men with disorderly conduct for allegedly tossing a dead groundhog and grouse into a western Pennsylvania tavern — but the borough’s police chief says in a news release that’s better than dealing with big-city crimes like robbery, rape and murder.

Brookville police Chief Ken Dworek says his “big city” friends have been enjoying the story since the incident was reported Wednesday by The Associated Press.

The (Dubois) Courier-Express first reported Friday that the men who the chief says were “dissatisfied customers” have now been charged with disorderly conduct. They’re accused of tossing the animals into Bill’s Bar on Sunday in Brookville, about 70 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

Still, Dworek says in a news release faxed to the AP on Friday that he’s “happy we are not dealing with human bodies being dumped everywhere.”
