Residents of a small town in southwest Germany are scratching their heads over a weird mystery that has gripped their community: someone keeps leaving piles of meat at their local train station.
The half-pound deposits of minced meat have reportedly been spotted at an off-limits area of the station every few days over the last few weeks.
While the initial incident could be dismissed as some random occurrence, as more meat kept appearing, it was soon determined that there was some kind of purpose behind the puzzling piles.
One theory centered around the possibility that the meat contained poison with the purpose of killing any unsuspecting pets that might nibble of the free offering of food.
Fortunately, that hypothesis has been ruled out by both the authorities and, believe it or not, a community Facebook page devoted to discussing the German meat mystery.
