Dead pig found at Cypress mosque (Texas)

Dead pig found at Cypress mosque
What may be animal intestines also discovered at the facility
By Anita Hassan | December 5, 2012 | Updated: December 6, 2012 1:06am

The small, black pig lay dead on its side upon the wooden deck, a deep gash on the side of its belly.

That's what a congregant at the Islamic Outreach Center saw Tuesday evening when he and a handful of other worshippers arrived for nightly prayers. Worshippers also found blood stains near the door of the Harris County mosque.

"It looked like someone was trying to take it inside, but it was locked," said Ilyas Choudry, who helps run the center.

At the end of a news conference on Wednesday about the incident, mosque officials also discovered what appeared to be animal intestines hanging from the facility's front gate. The intestines may have come from the pig, which appeared to be cut open.

Mosque officials believe someone may have left the pig at the Cypress-area center as an act of hate. They called the Harris County Sheriff's Office, which is investigating.

1. Bigots. So devoid of imagination and creativity. . .

That's their major problem, for barren of such characteristics they lack empathy and fail to see our commonality.

2. If those idiots wanted to butcher a pig

Why didn't they cook it and put it to some use? Oh yeah, they're just plain old fashioned stupid.

6. Doubtful

Atheists don't hate that much. For a true act of hate to occur, religion is required.

7. Uh, no...

while we may find various religious beliefs, like touching or being around a pig will keep you out of heaven, rather silly, we don't go around doing shit like this. We are one of the most hated groups in America, why would we bring real trouble upon us?

5. How nasty.

I am sure it was just an invitation to a BBQ.

The act of a true coward; murder a small animal to make a point..."look everyone, I am big, lobotomized bigoted POS!"
