Animals including goats, chickens, and a white dove were found sacrificed at a cemetery on Long Island tonight. The SPCA of Suffa County is now offering a substantial reward to apprehend the individuals responsible. Good evening, I’m Joe Torres, and Sandra is not with us tonight. Detectives believe these horrifying and unsettling discoveries are part of a religious ritual.
Our reporter, Anthony Carlo, has the chilling details. Hidden amongst the fallen leaves in Union Cemetery on Long Island, a collection of fruits and vegetables was found. However, what was lying next to it will send shivers down your spine.
It was evident that we were faced with a case of animal sacrifice. The remains of a beheaded chicken, a black rooster, and a white dove were found, but the graphic image is too disturbing to share without blurring it.
This was the first shocking discovery in the past month. The most recent finding was a bag containing a decapitated chicken and coconut chunks. A man walking his dog discovered it near the entrance of the cemetery. The Suffa County SPCA strongly suspects that these incidents are the result of ritualistic animal sacrifice, a disturbing trend that is occurring more frequently on the island.
Prior to the gruesome findings at Union Cemetery in Middle Island, there were two cases reported of decapitated chickens placed in front of a headstone at Old Baptist Cemetery in Corum back in August. Chief Roy Gross reveals the grim extent of this brutality, mentioning a particularly disturbing case where cow tongues were found nailed to a tree. While this may be seen as a cultural practice, Chief Gross emphasizes that animal cruelty is illegal in New York.
The act of witnessing such horrifying scenes with dead and decapitated animals leaves an indelible mark on the psyche of anyone who experiences it. The SPCA of Suffa County is offering a generous reward of $2,000 for any information that leads to an arrest in this case..
