Severed Horse’s Head Discovered in Manhattan Park

In addition to the horse’s head, which had been cooked, she found fruits and vegetables and another animal’s head.

The woman called police. The ASPCA was also contacted, and the Department of Sanitation removed the horse’s head shortly after.

The investigating is ongoing.
