A subsequent investigation by the Middle Township Police Department and Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office revealed video footage of a white female with blond hair exiting a late-model dark-colored sedan, that appeared to be a Buick, and hanging these stuffed animals from a tree, according to a news release from the prosecutor.
