Pig's Head Placed In A Pentagram Outside Montreal Police Brotherhood Building

This isn't something you see every day: a severed pig's head surrounded by a pentagram.

The grisly set-up was placed outside the Montreal Police Brotherhood building, to be discovered the morning of Friday the 13th.


French-language newspaper Le Devoir reports that a tarp was placed over the pig's head at around 7:30 this morning, presumably to spare passersby.

As of this writing, no group or individual has claimed responsibility for the bizarre scene, but some have speculated that it could be a statement of sorts before this Sunday's anti-police brutality demonstration.

Police are commonly referred to as "pigs" in everyday slang.
