REEDERS, Pa. (AP) - Authorities in eastern Pennsylvania have opened an ethnic intimidation investigation after a cow’s head was left at the home of a Hindu resident.

State police in Monroe County say someone left “the complete head of a cow” at the Jackson Township home between Saturday night and Sunday morning.

Police said the male resident, who wasn’t identified, also has a cow sanctuary and “houses many cows based on his religion.” He has only been living there for the past month.

Police said in the victim’s religion, cows are the “symbol of life and may never be killed.” Police have opened an ethnic intimidation, criminal trespass and harassment investigation.
