WESTFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Westfield police are investigating after severed rabbit heads were found this week in two mailboxes in this western Massachusetts town.

The Westfield News reports that a man called police Monday evening to report that a rabbit's head had been left in his mother's mailbox.

The woman says a rabbit's head also had been left in her sister's mailbox about four blocks away.

The heads were removed and disposed of.

Police say a hunter who saw the heads said they appeared to be from wild rabbits, not domesticated rabbits.

Police say no one in the neighborhood reported seeing anything suspicious and they are seeking the public's help.
