JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville International Mail Facility discovered a disturbing package, just in time for Halloween.

The acting director of field operations Daniel Alonso tweeted the contents of the package Wednesday, revealing 200 equine bones.

Laying out the bones to complete a horse skeleton, the agency says the bones were arriving from Hungary and would not reach their final destination. Alonso said the agency wouldn’t be horsing around, leading authorities to seize the package.

The agency said in a tweet, the importation of equine bones requires a Veterinary Services Permit.
