SALT LAKE CITY -- A basket with the severed heads of goats and chickens was found near a fishing pond in Big Cottonwood Canyon east of Salt Lake City.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports police are stumped.

Unified police Detective Jared Richardson says a woman reported the find last week: the severed heads of six goats and as many chickens, with a nearby bag apparently containing their carcasses.

Richardson says the basket was discovered near Big Cottonwood creek and could have contaminated the city's water supply.
