Cow's head left outside home

CONSTANTINE TOWNSHIP, Mich. - A family found something gruesome on their front porch Monday at their home on Harder Road just north of Constantine.  “It sounds like someone didn’t like someone else,” said David Veale, a dairy farmer that lives less than a mile from the discovery.

 A man and his 18-year-old son were home when they heard someone at the door. “Someone rang the doorbell,” said Todd Pederson, a Michigan State Police trooper. “It was in wrapping paper wrapped just like a present.”
The present was bleeding and the family didn’t see who left it behind. “It was a Christmas present on the porch containing a severed cow head,” said Pederson.
Pederson said the family called to file a report to get some questions answered. “How did somebody get a hold of this cow head and put it in there,” he said.
Veale heard about the story and made sure they weren’t his cows. “I could them every morning. (There are still) seven,” he said.
Michigan State Police told ABC 57 News Wednesday that a friend of the 18-year-old admitted to the prank. No charges are expected to be filed.
