Trashed unicorn appears in NYC

Despite the headline, this is not a tale of a mythical creature imbibing too much in SoHo. Instead, it's about a friggin' skinned unicorn unceremoniously dumped in a NYC rubbish bin. It is a true shame that proof of unicorns comes in the form of its discarded corpse.

On the upside, if someone is murdering magical beings in the Big Apple, it might give the hookers a break (Except for those that cater to furries, of course).
