Watch your step in Miami. There might be a severed cow’s tongue on your running path.
Someone dumped a bowl filled with goat organs off a road on Big Pine Key, police said.
They could have been used as part of a religious ritual by Santeria worshipers, according to authorities.
The bowl was made of wood.
“Like a salad bowl,” said Bobby Dube, spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, which took the lead on the investigation into the finding.
In Santeria, animal carcass offerings are made as an act of worship.
The Monroe County medical examiner was called in to determine what the organs came from.
Initially, police were considering that the organs came from a Key deer.
The entrails were found by employees of the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District, which reported it to the sheriff’s office.
