The removal of frightening Halloween decorations that were considered too scary has caused public outrage and divided a community.

Police have knocked down two fake dead bodies hanging on a tree in the front yard of an Elanora Heights home on Sydney's northern beaches following a call from a concerned member of the public.

Northern Beaches Council confirmed that rangers were present after contact was also made about the decorations.

Police inspector Maree Kiem told the Male Daily the decorations were inappropriate and & # 39; had crossed a line & # 39 ;.

Some neighbors said they were upset about the fake corpses that were taken down.

& # 39; It's a step too far. It's the PC brigade, & a neighbor said.

Another neighbor, Carma Birch, said she had the decorations & # 39; a bit nice & # 39; found.

& # 39; It is disturbing to think that a number of people are thinking about things, & # 39; she said.

Her husband said he hoped the police and council would be just as fast as being called the next time about a street burnout.

Northern Beaches Police posted a public warning about Halloween parties on Thursday.

& # 39; Today it's all about dressing up, knocking on the door for delicacies and especially having fun & # 39 ;, he says on Facebook.

& # 39; However, we see on some parts of the beaches with decorations that have gone that step, or more, too far.

& # 39; Dangle skeletons, spray cobwebs, dress in costumes.

& # 39; But please do not put anything in your garden that you are going to confront or insult, especially when it comes to young children. Fun and tastefully scary is the goal of the game. & # 39;

Do you think using fake bodies as Halloween decorations is appropriate?

Removing the decorations led to a divided response from the locals.

& # 39; Some people come in the Halloween spirit … make up for 90 percent of the beaches that don't recognize it at all & # 39 ;, said a woman on the Facebook Facebook page of the police.

Other residents claimed that the decorations had been in the garden for years on Halloween, while some agreed that they were inappropriate.

& # 39; Please also do not consider skeletons & # 39; hang & # 39; using rope / sling or the like, because it can get upset and can remind people who have lost someone in this way, & # 39; wrote a woman.
