WYNNEWOOD, OK -- Last Sunday afternoon, investigators say two suspects were seen recording themselves killing a Chincilla in front of the GW Exotic Animal Park in Wynnewood. Park officials say they called local authorities after witnesses alerted them of the incident.

Joe Schreibbogel says, "We're thinking that it's somebody tied to an animal rights organization. Actually killed one Chinchilla and made it look like we had done it and then abandoned the other live one here at the zoo."

Garvin County Sheriff, Larry Rhodes, says the case is still under investigation.

The suspects names are not being released at this time.
