HULL, Ga. -- Four days have passed and no more severed dog heads have been left on the front porch where Zachary Osburn lives north of Athens.
For two days straight — Nov. 23-24 — the heads of dogs were found on the steps leading to the home where Osburn, his sister, and girlfriend all live in Madison County
Osburn called the Sheriff’s Office, which sent a deputy to investigate the bizarre matter, but the motive for someone leaving the heads, or even how the dogs died, is a mystery.
“My landlord told me if it happens one more time he’ll get a security camera and if we find out who is doing it, we’ll see to it that charges are filed,” the 20-year-old Osburn said Thursday.
On Nov. 23, Osburn’s sister was leaving for work when she saw the head of a black dog at the foot of the steps. The sister owns a black dog and initially thought it belonged to her canine.
“My sister didn’t even go to work the first night because she was so shook up about it,” he said, explaining that his sister refused to take a close look at the head.
The sister’s dog was later found alive and well.
The next day, Osburn said that when he was leaving for work he found another dog’s head on the steps.
Because both heads were positioned at the steps while someone was still inside the house, this prompts Osburn to believe it is someone in his neighborhood who could observe his home.
“We’re keeping our eyes out and our ears open to see if we hear someone out there,” Osburn said. “It won’t be a good day for that person because I was very, very angry at the second one to say the least.”
