A shocked driver discovered the back windscreen of her car had been smashed by a 3kg frozen pork joint this morning.
Chrissie Williams, of Cookham Road, Maidenhead, heard her car alarm sound at 3.15am but she assumed it was the high winds battering the area and switched it off from her bedroom window.
But when the teacher went to leave for work at South Lake Primary School, Woodley, at 7.30am she was amazed to find her back windscreen smashed and the meat on the back seat of her Peugeot 207 cabriolet.
The 56-year-old said: "What on earth is anyone doing with a frozen piece of pork at that time in the morning?
"Why would anyone be walking around with it and then throw it?"
Chrissie even wondered if someone close-by had been burgled and the stolen meat used in the act which cost her a £75 excess and the inconvenience of waiting for replacement glass.
The mum-of-two, originally from north Wales, added: "I'm just so cross. I can't understand the mentality of mindless vandalism."
But she did admit the unusual weapon, rendered inedible because of a broken wrapper, struck a funny note with her.
"I can laugh about it now", said the Maidenhead Running Sisters member.
"Is someone missing a piece of pork?"
