A small rabbit was found decapitated in the 200 block of Hanna Way in Menlo Park, police reported Sept. 18.
Officers noted there was no blood at the scene, suggesting that the rabbit had been placed in the roadway.
The rabbit appeared to be a wild jackrabbit and non-domesticated, said Scott Delucchi, a spokesman for the Peninsula Humane Society. He said further investigations will be conducted by the Menlo Park Police Department.
Evidence at the scene was collected and will be sent to the county crime lab for analysis.
Police ask that anyone with information about this incident call the Menlo Park Police Department at (650) 330-6300.
