Australian police said they were investigating after the remains of two pigs, including their heads and entrails, were dumped at the Muslim section of a cemetery. (How disrespectful…to the pigs)
TimesLive (h/t Julia A) The animal parts were discovered by a family visiting the grave of a recently deceased relative at Rockingham Regional Memorial Park at Baldivis, south of the Western Australian capital of Perth, on Monday. “The effort that was put into it, the hate — it just beggars belief,” one relative, a woman identified only as Mira, told radio station 6PR. “For any dead animal to be put near your relatives is offensive.”
“We take these isolated incidents seriously and Rockingham detectives will thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident,” a spokeswoman for Western Australian police told AFP on Wednesday. The cemetery said the gruesome discovery was the first of its kind at the memorial park.
The incident comes during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan when the faithful around the world fast from dawn to dusk.
