The deer heads were discovered under a hedgerow by a local resident while she was walking her dogs on the Bridgend-to-Coshquin road on March 9.

Siobhan Ryan notified her husband John Ryan, an independent councillor, who subsequently alerted the relevant authorities.

He said the area was notorious for fly-tipping but that ‘what was found there last week was on a different level.’

He added that deer aren’t usually seen in the area so they must have been captured somewhere else and ‘dumped’ there.

‘It is cruel, it beggars belief,’ he said.

Pat Scully from The Wild Deer Association of Ireland said the deer appeared to be young stags, about two or three years old, and that their heads appeared to have been removed with a knife.

Mr Scully said: ‘There is a market for venison north and south of the border and unfortunately unscrupulous people will try and benefit from that.’
