From the website:

The animals lying on the floor of a building at Camp Aachen on Wednesday were clearly not alive. A dog’s stomach had been slit open, bones stuck out of the chest of a nearby goat and the lifeless carcass of a sheep lay on the linoleum.

Closer inspection revealed the beasts to be dummies made of painted fabric and foam. ...

John Krollpfeiffer, chief of the support center, said the animals on display were prototypes, part of a range of objects the center is making to mimic things insurgents use to hide improvised explosive devices in Iraq and Afghanistan.
