A Mexican drug cartel left a severed pig's head by the side of the road in a horror message for a alleged corrupt cop.
Police were horrified to find the decapitated hog next to a funeral wreath left by Mexico's dangerous Caborca Cartel for an FGR (Fiscalía General de la República) agent they claim is working for a rival drug gang.
Officers came across the gory mementos at the Yaqui fountain in Obregón, in the northwestern state of Sonora, on March 20, after being alerted to the grim memorial through social media, according to Borderland Beat.

In the funeral wreath, made up of cream-coloured flowers and ribbons, was a message addressed to officer Guillermo Avilés Encinas that read: "Descanse En Paz", meaning Rest in Peace.
Underneath the wreath was another message, which, according to a translation by Borderland Beat, read: "He who searches shall eventually find what he's looking for.
"I'm curious to know if the Chapiza – Salazar mob will save you from that f***ing beat down we're going to give to you.
"He who warns in advance isn't a traitor."
The cartel is believed to have taken aim at officer Encinas after coming to believe he was working with La Chapiza, a branch of the rival Sinaloa Cartel run by El Chapo's sons including the recently-arrested Ovidio Guzmán López.

The two cartels are currently fighting for control of Obregon, with Fernando Salmerón Peréz – also known as El Nando, El Wacho (the rascal), and El Ladrillero (the brickmaker)– leading the Los Alfas faction of the Caborca Cartel.
It is also believed another Caborca Cartel subgroup, La Plaza, may also be operating in the city, but this is unconfirmed.
Cartels are known for their violent tactics used against one another as they fight for control over different areas of Mexico.
The Congressional Research Service estimates around 150,000 homicides in Mexico between 2006 and 2018 were linked to drug cartels, with tens of thousands of other people "disappearing" under similar conditions.
Some of their more horrific methods of torture or murder include ISIS-style beheadings, with one of Los Zetas' leaders – Iván Velázquez Caballero – even earning the nickname El Talibano after his penchant for the technique.
Other victims have been mummified or burned in acid baths.
