Authorities in a pair of New Zealand communities say, for the last three weeks, a mysterious miscreant has been dumping hundreds of pounds of meat in trash cans throughout the towns. The truly weird series of events reportedly began in late August when a troublesome individual disposed of a whopping 485 pounds of beef and lamb chops in various rubbish bins. found in two neighboring suburbs of the city of Christchurch. Exactly two weeks later, the ne'er-do-well struck again and dumped another 440 pounds and, one week later, they made another 'deposit' in the form of a jaw-dropping 550 pounds, bringing the grand total to nearly 1,500 pounds left in the trash cans of the two communities.
