Amma, W.Va.-- Police responding to a car crash early Friday morning found dozens of chickens, an AK-47, ammunition and "improvised explosives," reports CBS affiliate WOWK.

Police say Seth Grim, of Pennsylvania, rolled his 1998 Ford Explorer around 4 a.m. in Williamson. His dog, which was in the car, but apparently trying to leap through a window at the time, died after the accident.

Grim suffered minor injuries.

When police arrived to the scene, they found marijuana and between 30 and 40 chickens in the back of Grim's car, in addition to the gun, ammo and altered fireworks that officials referred to as "improvised explosives."

Some of the chickens were killed in the accident.

A bomb squad was also called to retrieve the explosives from the scene.

Grim was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, a felony, and other charges are pending, the Associated Press reports.
