Severed horse head found in Manhattan park

A woman in Highbridge Park in Upper Manhattan Sunday morning discovered a severed horse head and other animal parts inside a cardboard box, according to the NYPD.

The woman came upon a Corona beer box at about 11 a.m. and opened it only to find the head, other unidentified animal parts including bones, fresh fruit and bottles of soda. Some of the animal parts may have been cooked, said police.

The Department of Sanitation removed the box shortly after. The investigation is continuing. The ASPCA and city Animal Control and Welfare were notified.
