It’s not just the kids either — everyone is freaked out. “You take a double take because it is a very realistic display,” says local mother Jackie Anselmo. “[I’m] Almost horrified that somebody would think that it’s okay to put it that close to an elementary school.”
The woman who created the gruesome scene, Vicky Barrett, took the display down after it caused an international incident.
