Police in Manhattan Beach, Calif. are investigating a dead pig found wearing a Mitt Romney T-shirt and placed at a Republican campaign office Thursday (Nov. 8) morning.

The animal, which was said to be from a pork butcher shop, was discovered at the front of the building, with barbed wire around its neck. Authorities discarded the carcass in a nearby trash can.

Neighbors in the Southern California beach city saw the animal was unsure what it was. “I thought it was a dead body at first,” said one witness.

Manhattan Beach Animal Control removed the container holding the animal. Although the incident appears to be politically motivated, police said that there is no evidence suggesting that any particular crime was intended. Forensic testing will be ran on the animal’s remains.

With the presidential election coming to a close earlier in the week, a resident noted the incident as an example of the heightened political climate throughout the campaign. “That is something that turns me off to this whole political system and this recent election and how divided its made us all.”

The campaign headquarters remained closed Thursday, so it is unclear whether anyone working at the location ever saw the animal.

Anyone with information  about the happening are asked to contact Manhattan Beach Police at 310-802-5123.
