Motorists have reported seeing a pig's head poking out of a set of traffic lights in western Sydney.
Warning: graphic image below.
The shocking sight on Banks Drive in St Clair saw police called around noon today.
The head was quickly removed, with no motivation apparent for the prank.
“My very observant son said, ‘What is that in the traffic light?’ I said, ‘Must be a stuffed animal’,” motorist Laura Alcorn said, reports the Daily Telegraph.
“As we turned I caught a better glimpse and said, ‘Nope that’s a pig’s head’.”
Ms Alcorn called Penrith Council and the RMS to report the scene.
A spokesperson from NSW Police has confirmed that an investigation is underway.
Anyone with information is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
