Tel Avivans woke up early Tuesday morning to the sight of a severed goat head in the center of Dizengoff Square, next to a sign calling to "end animal slaughter."

As police began investigating, they received another report, this time of a severed cow head in north Tel Aviv, along with a sign protesting slaughter houses and animal slaughter.

In the third incident of its kind on Tuesday morning, a severed sheep head was found in Jaffa's Noga district. A fountain there was painted red and the words "the slaughter houses are now transparent" was sprayed on the walls. 

Police are investigating what they believe is an act of provocation by animal rights activists. As part of the investigation, police are scanning social media networks for any organization that may have taken responsibility for the incident.
