It was the day after Thanksgiving that Kat Osburn said she walked out her front door to go to work. What she saw at the bottom of the steps was something she never expected.
"I see this head looking back at me," Osburn said. "I dropped my stuff, and ran out towards the truck. I was scared, and crying of course and didn't know what to do."
At that moment Osburn said she thought the head could've belonged to her dog Jagger. Jagger was missing and would not be found until hours later.
"I was so relieved when I found him. The head looked a lot like Jagger and I just couldn't tell if it was or wasn't him," Osburn said.
Osburn said she did not immediately report the head on her porch to the Madison County Sheriff's Office because her landlord suggested her dog might have drug up the dead dog head to the house.
That would all change when Osburn found a second severed dog head near the porch.
"I knew it wasn't a prank," Osburn said. "That is a very disgusting thing to do, I felt threatened.
That threat, Osburn believes came from a neighbor who reported her to her landlord when Jagger was running through the neighborhood.
"We just moved here. I haven't met any of the neighbors so we have no idea who it was, but I think it was whoever complained about my dog."
What worries Osburn the most is wondering whether or not the two dead dogs that ended up on her property were family pets.
"I have been checking Craigslist and looking for pictures of the dogs, because whoever's dogs they belonged to deserve to know what happened to them," Osburn said. "It's just awful. Some children is probably missing their dog right now. How can you do that? That is disgusting, but I guess there are crazy people that will do it."
Since Nov. 24 Osburn has not found any other dog heads. If she finds another one her landlord plans to install surveillance cameras.
