A dead pig in a Romney T-shire was left at the GOP headquarters in Manhattan Beach, California last night.
The pig’s head was wrapped in barbed wire.
ABC Local reported:
A dead pig clad in a Mitt Romney T-shirt was left at a Republican campaign office in Manhattan Beach.
Manhattan Beach Police had to discard the pig’s head and its feet in a trash bin, but not before several passersby saw it.
“I thought it was a dead body because of the way he approached it,” said Manhattan Beach resident Andy Gaeta. “And then when he lifted the shirt, he saw the head wrapped in barbed wire and it’s cut in half, the whole skull was. It looked like something from a butcher’s market.”
The pig was laid out at the doorstep of the Republican headquarters on Highland Avenue.
Tom Scully saw the display about 6:30 a.m. while he was out walking his dog.
“When I got closer I was like, ‘Oh, this is kind of gross. There was like barbed wire on its head. It’s nasty,” said Scully.
Manhattan Beach Police Animal Control later removed the trash bin containing the pig’s remains, taking it as evidence. Police say they’re investigating the incident as an “illegal dumping of an animal carcass.”
According to a police sergeant, they have no evidence suggesting any other crime was committed at this point.
