Last March, several severed animal heads were placed in different public locations in Tel Aviv, and a Holon fountain was vandalized and filled with 15 dead fish.

A severed goat's head was found in Tel Aviv's Dizengoff Square, together with a sign reading in red paint: "End animal slaughter." Shortly thereafter police received another report, this time of a severed cow head found on Eben Gvirol Street, along with a sign protesting slaughterhouses, and a nearby fountain was painted red.

Later, the severed head of a sheep was found near a fountain in Jaffa's Noga district. The fountain was also painted red and the words "the slaughterhouses are now transparent" were spray-painted on the walls.
Police estimate that animal rights activists are behind this horrifying campaign, since the graffiti "FREE 269", representing activists against slaughtering of animals in industrialized economies was found on the scenes. Due to the numerous instances of these events, police set up a special investigation team, and eight activists were arrested in March.
