Bloody animal skulls placed in yard near Fremont Trollon December 27, 2013 @ 10:29 am (Updated: 10:41 am - 12/27/13 )
Was it an offering for the Fremont Troll? The intent is uncertain, but Seattle Police received a call around 2:30 a.m. Friday when residents of a home across from the Fremont Troll found animal skulls in their yard.
Seattle Police Detective Mark Jamieson said it was a "kind of strange call to get early this morning."
When officers arrived at the house they found skulls, possibly belonging to sheep, that had appeared to be freshly skinned and still bloody.
Ten skulls had been placed on the front lawn, two on the porch and one left on a chair.
A resident told police she had "run off" some "neighborhood kids" the night before, and thought they might be responsible for the incident.
The skulls were disposed of in a dumpster, and police are investigating but do not have any suspects.
