Lawrenceburg residents gawked at an odd site on East Woodford Street near the railroad tracks Monday morning.
Lawrenceburg Police Officer Sean Wells said he and Chief Chris Atkins saw a dead armadillo while working morning traffic due to malfunctioning railroad stop arms. Wells said the armadillo presented a hazard because drivers were stopping to look.
“It was a big excitement,” Wells said.
This in not the first time an armadillo has been found in Anderson County. In 2011, one was found at the Convenience Store on Broadway Street.
