The skeletal remains of a horse head found Monday in a densely populated section of Washington, Pa., were probably dragged there from trash cans by scavengers due to delayed garbage pickup over the holiday weekend, a local police chief said.

"We have no indication of foul play or satanic cults or anything like that," said Washington police Chief Roger Blyth about the remains, found in an alley off of Third Street, about two blocks north of busy Jefferson Avenue.

City Councilman Matt Staniszewski, who also heads the public works department, said public works employees used a high-lift and other special equipment to remove the remains from the roadway. They were disposed of in a "safe location," he said.
