Police are investigating after lamb chops were stuffed down a car exhaust pipe amid a spate of mysterious attacks involving undercooked meat.
Eggs and raw meat were thrown at two properties in Credenhill Hereford last Saturday night in bizarre incidents where the motive is unclear.
And the attacks on homes took place on the same day that lamb chops were jammed into the exhaust of one car and chicken drumsticks into the rim of another vehicle.
West Mercia Police have shared images of the fresh meat used in the incidents and are appealing for information.
Whether it was a practical joke or something more sinister, the crime was not well received on social media as people became angry at the waste of good food, especially during the cost-of-living crisis.

“Not just making a mess for people, what a waste of good food when so many people in the world are starving,” said one person on Facebook in response to a police post.
Another wrote: “What a total waste of good food! I eat meat and never waste it because I think of the poor animal that was sacrificed!”
Similarly, someone else wrote, “The price of lamb too,” and someone replied, “Exactly what I thought! Don’t shove it up a car exhaust, give it here, I’ll take care of it!”
Many others complained while some treated it with humor.
One wrote: “Police are on the scene now and have a butcher nearby.”
