Decatur (WAOK/AJC)-Decatur police are looking for the owner of …a cow tongue. Yes, a cow tongue. A suspicious packagewas found on the grounds of the old historic courthouse on the Decatur Square around noon on Thursday.

Decatur Police were called to examine the package.  The package was wrapped in duct tape, Deputy Police Chief Keith Lee told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. After the area was cordoned off, Lee said, a MARTA explosives dog was called in, but the canine didn’t detect anything.

The package was then X-rayed, but nothing mechanical was observed, Lee said. The next step was to cut the package open.

Inside, authorities found a cow tongue. Yes, a cow tongue.

Lee said authorities haven’t identified the tongue’s owner or how it ended up on the courthouse grounds.

“Don’t know who lost their cow tongue, but they caused a little commotion,” Lee said. “All is well,” he added, “except for the poor cow who lost his tongue.”
