The chief says a couple returned home from a trip Saturday evening to find a large cardboard box with their name and address on it near their front door. Inside was the cow's head. The chief says it "caused the victims, especially the wife, stress."
Police say the pranksters came to police headquarters to confess Tuesday night. One of them has experience butchering cows.
The chief isn't naming the suspects. He plans to file harassment and disorderly conduct citations against them later this week.
