Oh and I personally think it's a horse head as I was really close to it and I have a feeling it happened last night on new years eve.

That's nasty and evil.
I would have cried to see it.

That sounds exactly how a butcher would do it. Ears missing and all that.

I dissected a horse head about a month ago and it's ears were missing but it did have hair. We had to skin it ourselves.

It could have been an accident... fallen off a lorry or something. At least I hope so!

Tbh, you need to know what you are doing when you skin a horse and you need a sharp knife! It's not easy!

And also maybe it had been dead somewhere else, and an animal dragged it there. You just can't know and the police won't be able to do much (if anything) about it.

Well I just hope it isn't something people are doing to random horses...I am hoping SDFA is right and I believe you have to know what you are doing to skin/butcher an animal...I heard it was difficult.

Also we have a big cat park a city away and people send their horses there for the cats but the butcher does it there soo...

Maybe it fell off the truck that was taking them to where they dispose the remains, if that's how they dispose the remains? Cause at cat parks the horses are shot before they are cut up and such. So no pain or stolen horses were involved if that's where the horse head came from.

I think you would have heard about a distraught horse owner that has a horse with no head by now if something suspicious had happened.

Skinning a deer, moose, elk or buffalo etc is very very hard work and very precise. I "cape" deer, elk and game like for folks who want to mount them. I have been doing it for years and its very tedious work to get the skin off without cutting it, especially around the eyes, nose and bones of the face. Its not something that the average person is going to do for fun.
I suspect if this is truly a horse, then it probably fell off a rendering truck. I still wonder if its not an elk or moose, if you have not seen what one looks like skinned, minus the ears nose and just the eyes, it is very deceiving.
And yes, a skinned bear foot looks like a human foot. Many people report finding a human foot and it ends up being a bear foot that some dog has drug home after the owners skinned it out.

Oh my! That's just... ugh! I don't understand why people can be so cruel and heartless.
