A dozen bloody skinned animal heads were left in the front yard of a Fremont home this morning, according to Seattle police.
Officers found the bizarre scene just before 2:30 a.m. at Troll Avenue and North 36th Street, across the street from the Fremont Troll. Police said 10 of the animal heads were left on a lawn and two were on a porch, including one that had been placed on a chair.
The heads appeared freshly skinned and still bloody, police said.
Officers knocked on the door of the home where the two residents said they had no idea what the skinned heads were doing on their lawn. One of them told officers he had chased off some “neighborhood kids” the previous night, and guessed they may be responsible for the skullduggery.
All the heads were disposed of in a trash bin. Police said they didn’t know what types of animals they were, but from photos that have been posted on Reddit they appear to be butchered sheep.
