Stumbling across a human skull on a paper plate is never a great way to start of a New Year.

Alas, some unfortunate hikers were greeted with just that -- a human skull on a paper plate -- yesterday afternoon as they trekked through Tilden Regional Park in Oakland, a popular spot for the recreationally inclined.

Here's what we can tell you about this gruesome finding:

According to CBS News, officers responded to the area of Grizzly Peak Boulevard, about a half mile west of South Park Drive, after getting multiple calls about a human skull.

When the cops arrived, they indeed found a human skull "out in the open" on a paper plate surrounded by beads, Officer Johnna Watson told the news station.

The cops are now trying to determine whose skull it is and why it was out there.
