Believed to have lifted it from a crime scene
This is undoubtedly one of the most shocking images of 2022, as a dog has been filmed running down a street with a decapitated human head clutched in its jaws.
The canine is believed to have picked it up from a grisly crime scene in the state of Zacatecas in the north of Mexico.
Authorities said the dismembered head had been left on a piece of cardboard at an ATM in Monte Escobedo on Wednesday night, with a sign warning that “the next head is yours”.
But, before the intended recipient could spot it, the dog picked it up and carried the head down the street.
The Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generacion (CJNG), one of the world’s most feared cartels, is believed to be behind it.
This cartel is led by El Mencho, Mexico’s most wanted person. He is also wanted by US authorities and they have set a reward of 10 million dollars for information that leads to his arrest.
Once police found the dog and the head, they were able to pull it away from the animal.
However, the victim has not yet been identified and the rest of the body has not been found.
Zacatecas has been the scene of a bloody turf war between local gangs backed by the Sinaloa and Jalisco drug cartels.
Drug cartels in Mexico often leave notes next to piles of dismembered human remains as a way of intimidating rivals or authorities.
