Dead pig remains at Romney headquarters - ABC news video



A dead pig clad in a Mitt Romney T-shirt was left at a Republican campaign office in Manhattan Beach.

Manhattan Beach Police had to discard the pig's head and its feet in a trash bin, but not before several passersby saw it.

"I thought it was a dead body because of the way he approached it," said Manhattan Beach resident Andy Gaeta. "And then when he lifted the shirt, he saw the head wrapped in barbed wire and it's cut in half, the whole skull was. It looked like something from a butcher's market."

The pig was laid out at the doorstep of the Republican headquarters on Highland Avenue.

Tom Scully saw the display about 6:30 a.m. while he was out walking his dog.

"When I got closer I was like, 'Oh, this is kind of gross. There was like barbed wire on its head. It's nasty," said Scully.

Manhattan Beach Police Animal Control later removed the trash bin containing the pig's remains, taking it as evidence. Police say they're investigating the incident as an "illegal dumping of an animal carcass."

According to a police sergeant, they have no evidence suggesting any other crime was committed at this point.

No notes were left behind. Nothing was addressed to anyone.

There will be a forensic examination of the remains.

Someone who felt manipulated after donating to Romney. I could see them being furious about being fooled by Fox.

14. yes, that was my exact my thought, people are so cruel



the is a small population of Somalians in Lewiston ME
pig heads have been left out in front of their stores.
I believe this is an act of disgusting RWNJ's, hate to think people on our side could commit such an act.

17. Don't worry

As I've said elsewhere on the thread this was pig remains, you can buy a cooked pig anywhere in Los Angeles, head and all and I doubt they killed it, too much work to bother.

30. The Mythbusters buy whole dressed pigs all the time

for their experiments, though they are in Northern CA. I can't imagine it's very difficult to find a whole dressed pig in a city the size of LA. How else would you have a pig roast?

ETA: In Chinese and Mexican cooking, the old joke is that the only part of the pig not used is the squeal/oink.

Didn't know that.

I see your point because most of the comments generated by this pig story blame Democrats

33. lol! My first thought

was that it was a Dem who had just had too much, was on a bender from the win on Tuesday and just went with it giggling the whole time.

I doubt we'll ever know. Later I figured it was probably a disgruntled teabagster who donated a lot of hard earned cash to the Romney campaign..
