What's That Weird Think Hanging From Teddy's Gate On Court Street?

Reader Molly just wrote to me to let me know about something quite weird at Teddy's, the women's clothing and accessories boutique at 216 Court Street, near Warren in Cobble Hill.
She writes:
On my way home from dropping my son off at preschool this morning, I stopped in my tracks when I got to Teddy's women's boutique on Court St. that had something hanging from the pull-down metal grate. At first I thought it was a piece of meat or an octopus, but when I looked more closely, all I could think was that it was some sort of internal organ. It was about the size of a woman's shoe, yellow and red, and slimy looking. It looked as though someone had purposely put it there right at eye level. I stood there for a few minutes hoping someone would pass by who I could talk to about it, but nobody was around at the moment. I can't stop thinking about it! It's hideous looking.
Molly even sent along some photos she just took. It's truly disgusting. What is that?  Roast Chicken or some weird message?... Does anyone have an idea?

Update! Teddy just responded with the following comment:
We are as surprised by that nasty little present as anyone who sees the picture. We are checking with the local butcher shop and have informed the police, but we really don't think it is anything other than some moron with a sick sense of humor. Our cameras will catch them if it happens again. Grossness and stupidity combined! Yuck.
I am glad the store followed up with the police.  This is really quite bizarre, but I love some of the comments suggesting that aliens are coming.

I hate to say it, but it may be a threat of some kind, like an old style mob extortion racket. Give us out protection $ or this is going to be your insides on the gate!

I hope I am wrong.

To the folks at Teddy,
Thanks for the update. Glad you involved the police. Should be very interesting to watch the video.
If it is interesting (or appropriate), PMFA would love to post it.
We wouldn't want another storeowner to have to deal with something gross like this.

Just wanted to add - don't rule out the possibility of flying predators having delivered the present. A few months ago while walking up Court Street a hawk dropped a dead mouse right at my feet! Hawks can be nasty and disgusting and certainly are in the neighborhood.

Why the hell is a hawk nasty and disgusting?!?!? Seriously. Yes. kestrals and red tailed hawks, both beautiful birds, do fly and live in our area. And they eat pigeons and mice.. Those entrails are not the MO of a bird of prey. Quite the opposite. They don't ingest the fur or feathers leaving the pulp.
