That's Not a Halloween Decoration: Disturbing Thing Found Hanging From NYC Traffic Light

"We got witches out here."

It's not unusual to see a pair of shoes laced together and tossed over telephone wires or street lights, but what was hanging above the street in a New York City borough Tuesday had residents disgusted.

It was a few days after Halloween but two skinned and bloody goat heads hanging from a traffic light in Brooklyn were no decoration. According to WPIX-TV, after a local business took down the heads, they found out they were real.

Some think the heads were part of a sacrificial ritual, WCBS-TV reported, but police who are investigating it told the news station that there's no other evidence to link it to such an event. Police noted to WCBS that a slaughter house in the area sells goats to Halal butchers nearby.
