DUGGER, Ind. (WTHI) - A Sullivan County family says they feel threatened after they found a bloody pig head on their property.

Surveillance cameras captured a car driving by the Dugger home and an object being tossed out the window on to the property.

The family who lives at the home has the last name Pigg.

The homeowner, Joe Pigg, says this is just the latest in a series of personal threats. He says his wife’s tires were slashed in a separate incident.

Pigg says the pig head was tossed in his yard just three minutes after turning the porch lights off. He says the bloody head was discovered Saturday morning.

"My wife got up to go to work and she came back in fairly quickly and said hey, somebody did something. There's a cut-off head in our front yard. So I got up, checked it out and saw that it was a pig head and I started watching video and seeing where it came from."

News 10 spoke with Sullivan County Sheriff Clark Cottom. He says this incident is under investigation.
