Several people who were enjoying their day out at the Prospect Park in Brooklyn, were freaked out when they discovered a goat’s head, park officials in New York said.

Park workers said that park goers discovered the animal head on Monday.

The head of the goat was marked with the number 93 on its ear, park officials said. Employees removed the head from the scene and notified the police.

This is the second time in four years, that this has happened in Prospect Park, but similar findings are surprisingly common in national parks. The dead animals are probably the remains of rituals, but nobody really knows for sure.

“It is illegal to kill or harm animals in parks. If you see this activity in parks, please call police to report the crime and the location of the incident. Also call police if you find any animal remains. You can also call the City of New York at 311,” the Parks Department said in a statement.
