ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- New Mexico authorities are making a stink after an odor wafting from a New Mexico property led them to a foul discovery -- dozens of dead animals, including the remains of a rhino named Sally.

Authorities plan to cite, Ruben Saavedra, with illegally stockpiling animal carcasses after finding two dozen sheep, three horses and the rhinoceros on the Albuquerque property.

Saavedra, who operates an animal disposal service, said Thursday that personal problems caused him to get behind on his work.
