Police are investigating after a woman leaving for work with her 9-year-old daughter on Sunday morning found a frozen pig head stuck on top of a pole next to a tree in her yard.

Jennifer Keller said the sight terrified her daughter.

Caldwell Police Sgt. Jim Watson said evidence suggests the head had been there just a few hours. Watson said if the person who left the head is caught, he could be charged with misdemeanor disturbing the peace.

Keller said her yard has been a target for vandalism and theft in the past and that she's worried about incident.
