Tuesday morning severed animal heads were discovered in several public places around Tel Aviv.


At around 7 am passersby noticed the severed head of a slaughtered goat in the center of Dizengoff Square. A sign reading "End animal slaughter" was found beside the severed head.


Shortly thereafter police received another report, this time of a severed cow head found on the corner of Eben Gvirol and Habashan streets, along with a sign protesting slaughterhouses.


Later, the severed head of a sheep was found near a fountain in Jaffa's Noga district. The fountain was painted red and the words "the slaughterhouses are now transparent" were spray-painted on the walls.


The police have launched an investigation but so far no suspects were arrested. They estimate that animal-rights activists are behind the incidents.
