A pig’s head was left at the entrance of a synagogue in Lithuania.

The pig’s head, which reportedly had a Star of David engraved on its forehead and wore a black hat with sidelocks attached to it, was discovered last Saturday at a synagogue in the Lithuanian city of Kaunas.

Lithuanian Jewish leaders called the incident a neo-Nazi provocation, according to the European Jewish Press.  Kaunas police are investigating the incident but currently have no suspects, according to the Baltic News Service.

Up to 500 Jews live in Kaunas and about 5,000 Jews in all of Lithuania.
